Jonathan Dortheimer is a postdoctoral researcher in the MTRL Lab at the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning. Jonathan's research in the field of human-computer interaction in architectural design. His research focuses on AI, crowdsourcing, open-source and collective intelligence in architectural design.
This research project proposes artificial intelligence (AI) tools to automate and scale design conversations with thotusands of end-users in a design project. From the point of view of PD, such a tool offers end-users the capability to influence and intervene in design decisions before and during the design process.
This study presents generative adversarial networks (GANs), a machine-learning technique that can be used as an urban design tool capable of learning and reproducing complex patterns that express the unique spatial qualities of non-planned settlements. We report preliminary experimental results of training and testing GAN models on different datase...
This study investigates how collective intelligence emerges in crowdsourcing for architectural design. Previous studies have revealed that collective intelligence emerges from collaboration and can outperform individual intelligence. As design is a highly collaborative practice, collective intelligence plays a vital role in the design process. In t...
Recent advancements in information technologies allow exploring new collaborative design methods. In this context, crowdsourcing emerges as an internet-based method that allows undefined crowds to collaborate in producing new information products. Crowdsourcing is achieved by disassembling a complex cognitive task into micro-tasks and relying on co...
This paper provides an overview of``Architasker'', a large-scale crowdsourcing approach, platform, and method that enables a collaborative professional architectural design process in collaboration with a community of stakeholders. The platform includes communicating complex architectural project requirements; solution space exploration using diffe...
Inspired by open-source and crowd sourcing technologies, the concept of ‘open-source architecture’ has been increasingly used to describe collaborative architectural design (CoDesign) in recent years. In this article, we aim to show that major related issues remain unresolved. As such, they limit the wider adaptation of open-source methods to the w...
Since the rise of the Open-Source crowed-sourcing technologies in the last decade, many have used the term " Open Source Architecture " to portray a collaborative architecture and planning practices (Fuller & Haque, 2008; Kaspori, 2003; Ratti et al., 2011; Ratti & Claudel, 2015; Salingaros, 2011). This term embodies influences from the software ind...
Since 2003, the concept of open-source in Architecture received different interpretations that have been inspired by the open-source revolution in the software industry. Despite the theoretical discourse, there are only a few open source projects while the open source methodology isn't common in architectural projects. The research reviewed the ope...
