title Space Semantics - An investigation into the numerical codification of space
source M. Haeusler, M. A. Schnabel, T. Fukuda (eds.), Intelligent & Informed - Proceedings of the 24th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand, 15-18 April 2019, pp. 431-440
summary "Space-Semantics" is a computational design proposition that interrogates how architectural spaces can be interpreted and codified within an adaptable semantic framework. The investigation seeks to view space through an alternate lens, abstracting architectural spaces into a set of numerical descriptions that can either be used to interpret the qualities of an existing space, or as a seed to generate a coherent network of spaces based on identified spatial patterns within a chosen site. The article comprises of two parts: a theoretical investigation into representing spaces through numerically expressed semantic descriptions and a case study in the form of a proposal for an underground metro station within an urban context.
