    Manifested in form: tensions between utility and form in the digital design of architecture2012Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Manifested in form is an investigation of the current states of both the product and the processes of digital design in architecture. This licentiate thesis is a part of an ongoing PhD research study started in December 2009.The subject of this licentiate thesis is in the field of experimental digital design and production of architecture. As this field has grown and matured, architectural discipline has been confronted with radical shifts in the processes of formation and the appearance of products. The formal aspects of architecture have been pushed to incorporate utilitarian aspects. This research highlights and investigates the tension between processes and formal appearance, utility and the aesthetic. It states that intensification of these relationships is not due solely to the advent of digital technology: it has also originated from ontological shifts within the discourses of form and formation. It identifies which changes in these relationships result from the shift caused by advances in technology and which are due to ontological shifts. Within this field, it identifies certain ontological shifts which are aligned with digital techniques and describes the methods of design.The investigation uses ornament as an agent of the formal aspect, structure and construction as agents of utilitarian aspects and prototype as an agent of processes and product. This research unveils the ornament of the twenty-first century as a result of either methods of formal response to utility and/or methods of the digital construction of form. Thus, the ornament of the twenty-first century is an important part of the process rather than a non-essential element applied to a building. Ornament is manifested as a by-product of the processes.

    Technological advances in design and construction: bridging the gap between the conception stage and the manufacturing process2012In: Construction: Essays on Architectural History, Theory & Technology, Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER), 2012, p. 103-118Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the technological advances in design and manufacturing tools that have resulted from their computerization/digitalization. I argue that with current technological advances it is possible to reduce the gap between the conception and the realization of prefabricated buildings. The ability of computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing to structure a conception more realistically is discussed. The development of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines is described to show that the manufacture of complex geometric shapes can be as easy as standard symmetrical ones. The development and use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) is illustrated. I suggest that information, in the form of digital data, is the common ground between the conception stage and the manufacturing process.

    Symbiosis of structural & non-structural properties in building: Integrating structural behavior in the generative computational processes goes beyond instrumentality.2012In: FORM(In)FORMATION, 2012, p. 602-606Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper highlights the different interplays between structural and non-structural parts in building artifact as the result of modes of building processes and massing. The massing is understood as processes of assembling material into a body through which we identify with the building physically. In the last decade architecture discipline as the result of technological inventions has faced shifts in the design processes, massing processes and topology of the artefact. In which we witness integral coexistence between the structural and non-structural elements of building. In this paper the seeds of this integral interplay is scrutinised through the study of design and massing processes of a multi-functional pavilion prototype as a case study.

    The synergy between structure and ornament: a reflection on the practice of tectonic in the digital and physical worlds2012In: eCAADe 2012: The 30th International Conference on Education and research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe September 12 - 14 2012, Prague, Czech Republic, Prague, 2012, Vol. 2, p. 245-254Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of digital design and fabrication technologies in architecture has followed a paradigm shift, which has seen the topology, form and structure of architecture pushed to incorporate areas such as climate, construction, acoustic etc. While these digital technologies are intended to enhance the processes and performance, a discussion of aesthetics has been ignored. Surmising that the use of digital technology enhances the performability and efficiency aspects of architecture as well as the aesthetics, this research questions what the new relationships and arrangements for structure and ornament are. What are the challenges when structure uses a process-based logic and is sensitive to materiality whereas the aesthetics has a representation-based logic and is not sensitive to materiality? The authors of this paper contribute to this debate by using the notion of tectonic as a platform for gaining and creating knowledge about this issue and examining the issues through the design and prototyping of a Multi-functional Pavilion.
