Reconstructing architectural geometry

Earl Mark
1999 arq: Architectural Research Quarterly  
Acknowledgements The research was completed while I was on sabbatical as a Visiting Research Associate of the Martin Centre, Department of Architecture, and as the Thomas Jefferson Visiting  ...  Using simple trigonometry and vector algebra, however, an architect can access more directly the underlying geometrical modeling engine of a computer aided design system.  ...  Passive reliance upon a computer aided design system to explore geometry may also threaten the ability of architects to gain complete mastery of three-dimensional design.  ...

An Experiment on Hybrid Architectural Form-Making [chapter]

Shuenn-Ren Liou, Emmanuel-George Vakalo, Kuo-Chin Chang
1997 CAAD futures 1997  
The computer is used as a form-searching medium in the form-making process.  ...  This paper illustrates an approach to hybrid architectural form-making. A hypothetical project -the Des Moines Art Center 3rd Addition -is employed as a design experiment.  ...  One has to do with the difficulty for implementing design rules on computers.  ...
