(Faculty of Architecture, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, 2016)
Backcasting and a New Way of Command in Computational Design
It’s not uncommon that analysis and simulation methods are used mainly to evaluate finished designs and to proof their quality. Whereas the potential of such methods is to lead or control a design process from the beginning ...
Horizontal Load Resistance of Ruined Walls, Case Study of a Hungarian Castle with the Aid of Laser
The use of laser scanning technology for surveying historical buildings or ruins is gaining widespread popularity. While the “manual” surveying methods are time-consuming and provide just rough guess about the shape of the ...
Visual Structuring for Generative Design Search Spaces Scanning Technology
With generative design strategies, the act of design, the problem-solving process, and the interaction, understanding and representation of design artefacts have changed. As such strategies entail a large number of possible ...
Identification of Required Processes and Data for Facilitating the Assessment of Resources Management Efficiency During Buildings Life Cycle
Construction resources including materials, labors, and equipment are extremely cost extensive in all construction projects. The management of these re-sources is a complex process, which significantly affects construction ...
Stereotomic Models In Architecture, A Generative Design Method to Integrate Spatial and Structural Parameters Through the Application of Subtractive Operations
This paper introduces a generative design method for architecture grounded on the stereotomic approach. The method is based on the application of the Boolean subtraction operation to integrate spatial and structural ...
Enhancing Housing Flexibility Through Collaboration
Flexibility is a solution employed in housing from the twentieth century, in which allows space adaptation to its residents. In addition to creativity, various materials assisted this transformation over the years, improving ...
Classification of Parametric Design Techniques, Types of Surface Patterns
The main objective of this paper is to classify the techniques of para-metric design, and make the existing classification system more exact. The previously created classification was based on shape and logical aspects, ...
A General Theory for Finding the Lightest Manmade Structures Using Voronoi and Delaunay
A general theory for finding the lightest possible structures is introduced in this article. Then a special centroid form of the theory is introduced. This special form will later help in the implementation of the general ...
Geometric Modelling and Reconstruction of Surfaces
New technological environment is present in civil engineering and used in academic education. It is also used in geometric research. This paper presents some examples of different technology, used in surface modelling, ...
