Research Culture in Architecture PDF Book Detail Author: Cornelie Leopold
Publisher: Birkhäuser
ISBN: 3035620237
Category : Architecture
Languages : en
Pages : 480

Book Description
Research in and on architecture is as complex as the discipline itself with its different specialist fields, and therefore the results often remain unconnected. Research Culture in Architecture combines digital and analog research issues and demonstrates how important cross-disciplinary cooperation in architecture is today. The complexity and increasing specialization are elaborated on in the various chapters and then linked to the core of architecture, i.e. design. Scientists from the theoretical and practical fields present research results in the following subjects: "design methodology", "architectural space, perception, and the human body", "analog and digital timber construction", "visualization", "robotics", "architectural practice and research", and "sustainability".

Book Description
Nowadays, it is not unusual to find scaled building models with complex geometries of their facades and laser-burn marks in architecture schools. Even, 3D-printed models are also frequently found. Although there are prevalent critiques that nowadays architecture students are focusing form itself rather than space quality, creating complex forms that cannot be developed in practice, it is true that these days' student can handle geometries well due to many computer software. This book focuses on this part, more free, efficient, and accurate geometric expression and creation, rather than on what space is and how it is organized.Some people said it is getting easier to learn diverse digital design software due to easily accessible media in this digital era. However, because of overflow of information in the media, paradoxically, it is getting harder for beginners to learn various digital tools, questioning where and how they can start it.The main motivation of Digital Media Series (DMS) is needs for a textbook with systematically organized and structured knowledges about digital software in architecture. DMS recognizes the challenges beginners face when learning a new software like Grasshopper. While in reality the tool is not that difficult to learn with proper learning materials, beginners often spend too much time stuck on using a particular hurdle. The series was written to alleviate such challenge. The first book of DMS, Rhinoceros, introduces 3D modeling concepts as well as modeling habits, logics, and tips, and techniques, interweaving them with geometrical relationships. Specifically, the book promotes the mantra for a structured manipulation of geometry: from points to curves, from curves to surfaces, and from surfaces to volumes.This book, Grasshopper as the second book of DMS, also has similar configuration, contents categories, and organization to the first book based on the mantra. Furthermore, comparing and contrasting similar features in Rhinoceros, this book explains components in Grasshopper so that users who can handle geometries in Rhinoceros can smoothly transfer their modeling knowledges, habits, and logic from explicit to implicit modeling. This book aims to avoid learning concepts of algorithmic design or visual scripting through examples, and is designed to learn basic principles of Grasshopper and apply them to design. Although Grasshopper has a very well-organized forum based on collective intelligence where users can ask and answer questions, and there are various tutorials that are easy to access through web and various media, I believe that this book can fulfill the beginners' needs a textbook presenting an outline of Grasshopper and help users develop their ability to handle geometries through algorithmic idea.This book is not meant to be the only reference for learning Grasshopper. Users should use the book in combination with the wealth of public resources such as forums, tutorials, and documentation created by other advanced users. For any part of the book that the users may need more detailed information on, users should refer to the official documentation created by the software developer (McNeel) and the user forum of Grasshopper.

So wurde mein Interesse an den kristallographischen Symmetriekon­ zepten, dem Thema der ersten Fallstudie, durch Anregungen und Hinweise von Herrn E. Brieskorn geweckt. Sowohl von seiner Seite als auch von Herrn J. J. Burckhardt stammen uberdies viele wert volle Hinweise zum Manuskript von Kapitel I. Herrn C. J. Scriba mochte ich fur seine die gesamte Arbeit betreffenden priizisen Anmerkungen danken und Herrn W. Borho ebenso fUr seine ubergreifenden Kommentare und Vorschlage. Beziiglich der in Kapitel II behandelten projektiven Methoden in der Baustatik des 19. Jahrhunderts gilt mein besonderer Dank den Herren K. -E. Kurrer und T. Hiinseroth fUr ihre zum Teil sehr detaillierten Anmerkungen aus dem Blickwinkel der Geschichte der Bauwissenschaften. Schliefilich geht mein Dank an alle nicht namentlich Erwiihnten, die in Gesprachen, technisch oder auch anderweitig zur Fertig­ stellung dieser Arbeit beigetragen haben. Fur die vorliegende Publikation habe ich einen Anhang mit einer Skizze von in unserem Zusammenhang besonders wichtig erscheinenden Aspekten der Theorie der kristallographischen Raumgruppen hinzugefUgt. Ich hoffe, daB er zum Verstiindnis des mathematischen Hintergrunds der historischen Arbeiten des ersten Kapitels beitragt.

Robotic Fabrication in Architecture Art and Design 2014

Robotic Fabrication in Architecture  Art and Design 2014 PDF Book Detail Author: Wes McGee
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 3319046632
Category : Technology & Engineering
Languages : en
Pages : 407

Book Description
Robotic automation has become ubiquitous in the modern manufacturing landscape, spanning an overwhelming range of processes and applications-- from small scale force-controlled grinding operations for orthopedic joints to large scale composite manufacturing of aircraft fuselages. Smart factories, seamlessly linked via industrial networks and sensing, have revolutionized mass production, allowing for intelligent, adaptive manufacturing processes across a broad spectrum of industries. Against this background, an emerging group of researchers, designers, and fabricators have begun to apply robotic technology in the pursuit of architecture, art, and design, implementing them in a range of processes and scales. Coupled with computational design tools the technology is no longer relegated to the repetitive production of the assembly line, and is instead being employed for the mass-customization of non-standard components. This radical shift in protocol has been enabled by the development of new design to production workflows and the recognition of robotic manipulators as “multi-functional” fabrication platforms, capable of being reconfigured to suit the specific needs of a process. The emerging discourse surrounding robotic fabrication seeks to question the existing norms of manufacturing and has far reaching implications for the future of how architects, artists, and designers engage with materialization processes. This book presents the proceedings of Rob|Arch2014, the second international conference on robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design. It includes a Foreword by Sigrid Brell-Cokcan and Johannes Braumann, Association for Robots in Architecture. The work contained traverses a wide range of contemporary topics, from methodologies for incorporating dynamic material feedback into existing fabrication processes, to novel interfaces for robotic programming, to new processes for large-scale automated construction. The latent argument behind this research is that the term ‘file-to-factory’ must not be a reductive celebration of expediency but instead a perpetual challenge to increase the quality of feedback between design, matter, and making.

Languages : en
Pages : 268

Book Description
Architecture is very multi-disciplinary, attracting many different professions. This is reflected in the contributions contained in this volume that were originally presented at the 9th International Conference on Harmonisation between Architecture and Nature. The included works review the challenges and new opportunities of contemporary architecture as a result of advances in design and new building technologies, as well as the development of new materials. Never before in history have architects and engineers had such a range of new processes and products open to them. In spite of that, the construction industry lags behind all others in taking advantage of a wide variety of new technologies. This is understandable, due to the inherent complexity and uniqueness of each architectural project. Advances in computer and information systems, including robotics, offers the possibility of developing new architectural forms, construction products and building technologies that are just now starting to emerge. Changes have also taken place in the way modern society works and lives, due to the impact of modern technologies. Patterns of work have been disrupted and changed, affecting transportation and the home environment. The demand is for a new type of habitat that can respond to the changes and the consequent requirements in terms of the urban environment. Such topics are dealt with as building technologies, design by passive systems, design with nature, cultural sensitivity, life cycle assessment, resources and rehabilitation and many others including case studies from many different places around the world.
