Chapter
This text address the advantage of incorporating contemporary issues into formal and spatial representation, exploring the issue of who we are drawing with and how we explain the process. Experts in “minor” contents or multispecies theory, among others, advance interpretive clues to sort the results into conceptual frameworks called: ecological ent...

Inclusiveness can be considered a requirement for contemporary statements in urban and landscape design referring to age, condition, gender or nature. But how is inclusiveness influenced by spatial design? Can this relation be measured or proven? And more precisely, which interactions are considered across different generations or between human and...
Chapter
The development of automation in construction is opening up a whole field of research on how to optimise movements and manoeuvres.

Es un hecho que la forma de una ciudad, de un barrio, de casa se han constituido durante siglos mediante superposición de capas conformadas por los anhelos de sus habitantes y la intuición de sus gobernantes, siendo estudiadas durante décadas como entidades duraderas e inmutables. Sin embargo, una parte de las ciencias sociales considera relevante...
Chapter
This paper presents an experiment that explored teaching limits in architecture and computational arts. Three universities (York, Tu-Delft and Alicante) collaborated, commissioning and producing three Interactive scenographic spaces. These were formed by visitors, artificial trees as well as reactive technologies and emulated the way in which fungi...
Chapter
Full-text available
In this paper, we address three contemporary issues currently being discussed in architectural education. The first issue is the hypothesis of domesticity as a suitable framework to acquire architectural abilities when students choose to focus their designs on ordinary issues from their childhood neighbourhoods. The second issue is that of shared a...

NetLogo is a freely programmable environment that offers an interface whose graphic synthesis is sufficient to depict emergent and complex phenomena as long as they are characterized by the appropriate variables; it looks for ways to incorporate geometric and geographical bases of real cartographies; it has the capacity to speculate with the future...

Full-text available
This paper presents a method to generate free-form branched structures from a small number of different constructive elements, based on the postulates of discrete or combinatorial design. The research is based on the study of fractal growth as a generator of complex tree-like structures, using references from other scientific approaches in which th...

Este trabajo explica cómo comparar fuentes documentales y materiales gráficos producidos por estudiantes de arquitectura a lo largo de un semestre de aprendizaje a partir de técnicas de etiquetado digital, mejorando estándares de técnicas basadas en la visión artificial de libre uso disponibles en la aplicación Google Vision API. Se incluye una con...
Article
Full-text available
This article discusses the development of a design method for branched structures with seaweed-like or shrub-like forms based on diffusion-limited aggregation (DLA) to define its geometry. DLA has been used to reproduce convincing or credible growth rules from what has been learned from programmable displays such as NetLogo (Wilenski 1999). In part...

This communication summarizes the learning method of an architecture course in Alicante (2016-2017) focused on the design of lightweight scenographies for plots in Vega del Segura and Levante, in the hypothesis that their users could train some jobs from those included in Sophie Calle’s "Take Care of Yourself" (Calle, 2007), an installation with mo...

RESUMEN Esta comunicación explica las propuestas de activación del paisaje abandonado entorno a Sella y los valles cercanos desarrolladas durante el curso regular 2015-2016 en la Universidad de Alicante basadas en las siguientes hipótesis: una, que el paisaje natural y sus condiciones ambientales tiene unos valores no evidentes de gran potencia, a...
Conference Paper

This work compares three kinds of morpho-kinetic studies: first, patents developed by the architect Pérez-Piñero [16] [17]; second, operating principles of deployable structures made of rigid surfaces without voids (Miura-ori surfaces [13]); and third, dynamic responses of natural growth patterns (some kind of leaves and petals). It is a fact under...

This article describes actions that have led to progress in ways of living in citizen networks. The training framework is the last architecture course called Common Extra House Lab, in which it was encouraged to consider that there is no distinction between classroom, laboratory, and city. The domestic and its immediate public space (the extra-hous...

A través de un caso de estudio pre-doctoral sobre planteamientos morfológicos del arquitecto Pérez-Piñero, se pretende iniciar la edición de una serie de trabajos-muestra acerca de cuáles son las destrezas gráficas del estudiante que llega a un Máster y pretende iniciar un Doctorado. Gracias a la colaboración con Félix Candela, Pérez-Piñero diseñó...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Designing for domesticity includes the looseness of boundaries among what is considered private-public, own-shared, particular-collective, as strategies learnt from Jacobs (1961), Gehl (1971) or Kroll in the past, and Bow-Wow (2007) or Monteys (2012) in the present. In 2014, a group of students of Polytechnic School of the University of Alicante ma...

Few decades ago, a systematic study about bamboo structures was developed by the Stuttgart Institute, and specific tests for mechanical behaviour were developed. This paper exposes the basic principle of SI ana-lisys technique. The way that reeds and bundles had to be curved was the main issue. It also explains a test inspired in SI analysis, in wh...

Resumen " Isla de Información " fue una experiencia que tuvo lugar en abril de 2013 mediante la cual un grupo de ciudadanos, expertos y ayudantes en cartografía (arquitectos) peinaron una porción del territorio huertano a la búsqueda de indicios y de situaciones relevantes desde el punto de vista de la productividad o abandono, el patrimonio hidráu...

This essay approaches to the old town of Manresa with the assistance of global graphics (the town and the land) and local (the main constructions), to end up understanding that it works like an ecosystem with the natural and urban environment in which human resources, energetic and reuse processes take place. In particular, the great church of Sant...

RESUMEN De un tiempo a esta parte, cuando se ha pretendido democratizar un proceso de diseño, se ha extendido la costumbre de incorporar expertos en dinámicas de participación para el análisis o la obtención de gráficos (sociogramas y flujogramas) con el objetivo de tutelar el proceso e identificar oportunidades y conflictos. En el taller "Common E...
