Conference Paper
Language is ambiguous; many terms and expressions convey the same idea. This is especially true in design fields, where conceptual ideas are generally described by high-level, qualitative attributes, called design intents. Words such as "organic", sequences like "this chair is a mixture between Japanese aesthetics and Scandinavian design" or more c...

This paper reports a pedagogical experience that incorporates deep learning to design in the context of a recently created course at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture. It analyses an exercise called Bubble2Floor (B2F), where students design floor plans for a multi-story row-house complex. The pipeline for B2F includes a paramet...

While attention-based transformer networks achieve unparalleled success in nearly all language tasks, the large number of tokens coupled with the quadratic activation memory usage makes them prohibitive for visual tasks. As such, while language-to-language translation has been revolutionized by the transformer model, convolutional networks remain t...

Robotic painting has been a subject of interest among both artists and roboticists since the 1970s. Researchers and interdisciplinary artists have employed various painting techniques and human-robot collaboration models to create visual mediums on canvas. One of the challenges of robotic painting is to apply a desired artistic style to the paintin...

Inicialmente destinadas a la creación rápida de prototipos, las tecnologías de fabricación aditiva se adaptan cada vez más a la producción de componentes funcionales. Su aplicación en arquitectura ha crecido rápidamente desde el lanzamiento público de patentes, la técnica más popular es la técnica AM, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), y desde el des...

Language is ambiguous; many terms and expressions can convey the same idea. This is especially true in creative practice, where ideas and design intents are highly subjective. We present a dataset, Ambiguous Descriptions of Art Images (ADARI), of contemporary workpieces, which aims to provide a foundational resource for subjective image description...

Article
Additive manufacturing is evolving toward more sophisticated territory for architects and designers, mainly through the increased use of scripting tools. Recognizing this, we present a design and fabrication pipeline comprised of a class of techniques for fabrication and methods of design through discrete computational models. These support a proce...
Chapter
The use of programming languages in design opens up unexplored and previously unworkable territories, mainly, in conventional architectural practice. In the 1990s, languages of continuity, smoothness and seamlessness dominated the architectural inquiry with the CNC milling machine as its manufacturing tool. Today’s computational design and fabricat...
