Performance-oriented Design Assisted by a Parametric Toolkit - Case study
Ongoing development of Budapest Zoo includes a Biodome building which is going to be the largest building of its kind in Europe. The Biodome was designed by Mérték Architectural Studio, supported by ABUD Engineering Ltd ...
Minka, Machiya, and Gassho-Zukuri, Procedural Generation of Japanese Traditional Houses
Minka (traditional folk house), machiya (historic town house), and gassho-zukuri (farmhouse conserved in the World Heritage villages) have individual characteristics in terms of their geometric shapes and are strongly ...
Connecting Online-Configurators (Including 3D Representations) with CAD-Systems, Small Scale Solutions for SMEs in the Design-Product and Building Sector
As small and medium enterprises, such as craftsmen in the building sector, are often unable to invest in larger scale software solutions, full-blown on-line product configurators with embedded real-time 3D rendering appeared ...
Solar Envelope Optimization Method for Complex Urban Environments
Planning requirements in terms of energy efficiency and daylighting strongly contribute to shaping the layout of cities. Direct solar access is the main requirement of the right to light in Estonia. Direct sunlight hours ...
Parametric Details of Membrane Constructions
The present paper represents a novel method of creating algorithms to accelerate and optimize the complex modeling of membrane details for designers. The Rhino® Grasshopper® software is used for the work. A set of parametric ...
Integration of Facility Management System and Building Information Modeling
Based on the investigation of administration of apartment building in Japan, a database for facility management, including the information of inspection schedule and maintenance frequency, are proposed in XML. The building ...
Complexity across scales in the work of Le Corbusier, Using box-counting as a method for analysing facades
Since Benoît Mandelbrot raised the question about the length of Brit-ain’s coastline in 1967, it has become obvious that fractal geometry is appropriate for describing irregular forms. In 1996 Carl Bovill applied box-counting, ...
Time-based Matter: Suggesting New Formal Variables for Space Design
Presently, digitalisation has moved beyond a desktop paradigm to one of ubiquitous computing; by introducing new possibilities and dynamic materials to various design fields, e.g. product design and architecture, it allows ...
Developing New Computational Methodologies for Data Integrated Design for Landscape Architecture
The form language of the currently ongoing trend of parametric design remains often symbolic and arbitrarily interchangeable. In order to counteract this general trend within landscape architecture, the increasing ...
