Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes the concept of integrating several complexity evaluation methods, previously developed and tested by the authors, into one product configurator through a technical prototype. In this case variations of an online configurator for design products based on a choice of these digital complexity evaluation methods developed between 2...
Article
Full-text available
This article contributes to clarifying the questions of whether and how fractal geometry, i.e., some of its main properties, are suitable to characterize architectural designs. This is done in reference to complexity‐related aesthetic qualities in architecture, taking advantage of the measurability of one of them; the fractal dimension. Research in...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This article scrutinizes the possible use of musical notations as graphic and sound as acoustic representations of multidimensional adjacencies. The commonly used representation of adjacencies as a graph or a bubble diagramm may only supply limited clarity in certain cases, especially if several layers of parameters are involved. This research show...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes the concept of thè`Experimental Bureau'' as a didactic environment aiming to deal with real-life design tasks within the framework of architectural education. Its main focus lies on the specific opportunities for digital empowerment of students who learn about the design process-sometimes even in the role of contractors-in real...
Article
Full-text available
The spherical perspective has not yet been widely introduced into design education. Its ability to serve as a meta-class model of vanishing point perspective systems, giving a teacher the opportunity to present approximations of the straight linear perspective models (with one, two or three vanishing points) all in one system, is presented in this...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The paper describes and discusses the possible integration of gradient analysis into the learning environment, as a tool to optimize design-objects in regards to their proportion-complexity. To create a responsive system to be used within a design- or learning process the gradient analysis has been integrated in an interactive genetic algorithm (IG...
Chapter
The approach presented aims at reducing solution space complexity for MC products through early communication with future customers, in short: Managing complexity by efficiently managing the creation of the product’s solution space. In using designcrowdfundings to gather funds for a first series and also for the gathering of information about custo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The paper describes and discusses the possible integration of gradient analysis, as a method and tool for architects and designers to analyze the degree of proportion-complexity of a design, into the process of designing an object utilizing interactive genetic algorithms (IGA). A VBA implementation for AutoCAD has been developed by the authors, ena...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of the research presented in this paper is to provide an additional method and tool for architects and designers as well as students and scholars to analyze the degree of complexity of a design. Fractal analysis (box counting) e.g. is one of these methods already used in architecture to measure the degree of complexity of an architectural d...
Conference Paper
Designfunding is defined as a unique category of crowdfunding. It is described and explored regarding its potential to become a major inquiry tool for the preliminary gathering of data as a basis for the conception of mass customization products.
