title EventMode - A new computational design tool for integrating human activity data within the architectural design workflow
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 649-656
summary Architectural designers are currently depending on a multitude of elaborate computational tools in order to explore, manipulate and visualize the geometric form of their building projects. However, if architecture can be perceived as the manipulation of geometric form in direct relation to human activities and events that take place inside it, then it is evident that such design parameters are not sufficiently represented in the currently available modeling software. Would it be possible to introduce the human activity element in the aforementioned computational tools in a way that informs the design process and improves the final building product? This paper attempts to answer this question by introducing a new experimental design tool that enables the creation of parametric human activity envelopes within three-dimensional digital models. The novel approach is that this tool enables the parametric interaction of these components with the actual building geometry and generates novel visual and data representations of the 3D model. The goal is to improve the decision-making process of architects as well as their clients by enabling them to evaluate and iterate their designs based not only on the building's form but also on the human spatial events that take place inside it. A prototype implementation demonstrates the tool's practical application through three design examples.
