  • Abel, Chris. (2007-10-04)
    This paper discusses some issues in design theory arising from the use of genetic algorithms in architecture. The rationale for such programs derives from the iterative process of Darwinian natural selection, which has ...
  • Ahlquist, Sean. (2007-10-04)
    The architectural technologist could be defined as a designer whose methods are driven by the intimate and experimental use of varying digital technologies. The technologist, in this scenario, is a designer by training, ...
  • Andresen, Brit (2007-10-04)
    Assembling for the first time a braced, timber frame as a freestanding structure, where no piece could be taken away without collapsing it, was surely a ‘eureka’ moment in architecture. The expressive potential of the ...
  • Austin, Mike (2007-10-04)
    Certification Boards visiting architecture schools regularly demand more ‘technology’ in the curriculum, and an increased ‘integration’ of design and technology in the teaching programme. The persistence of this over ...
  • Barber, Daniel. (2007-10-04)
    At the end of 1957, a group called the Association for Applied Solar Energy held an international competition for the design of a solar house, to be built in Phoenix, Arizona. In the mid-1950s – before the development ...
  • Bell, Eugenie Keefer (2007-10-04)
    Frank Gehry’s 1997 Guggenheim Museum Bilbao drew international attention to the physical and rhetorical potential of titanium for use as a building ‘skin.’ Titanium was transformed from a material previously associated ...
  • Burns, Karen. (2007-10-04)
    This paper offers a close reading of one architectural text engaged in “knowledge transfer”: the use of evolutionary biology discourse as an explanatory account and authority claim supporting Greg Lynn’s Embryological ...
  • Chapman, Michael.; Ostwald, Michael. (2007-10-04)
    The paper will look at the historical notion of prosthesis through an analysis of Rem Koolhaas’s 1998 House at Floirac where technology becomes the literal and spiritual generator of the space mediating, through architecture, ...
  • Ednie-Brown, Pia. (2007-10-04)
    This paper argues for an ethics embedded in the largely digitally oriented field of research I refer to as ‘processual architecture’, in terms of Francisco Varela’s notion of ethical expertise. Processual architecture ...
  • Frichot, Helene. (2007-10-04)
    In her recent book, Architecture, Animal, Human: The Asymmetrical Condition, Catherine Ingraham maintains a stalwart asymmetry between, on the one hand, human, animal and other life, and on the other hand, the material ...
  • Frumar, Jerome. (2007-10-04)
    The digital nature of post-industrial societies has profound implications for architectural design, documentation and construction. Digital tools and technologies bridge the representational divide between conception and ...
  • Goad, Philip. (2007-10-04)
    Throughout his career, Australian architect and critic Robin Boyd (1919-1971) explored alternatives for the orthodox elements of architecture. Using the laboratory-scale of the detached house, Boyd would rethink wall, ...
  • Gu, Ning.; Maher, Mary Lou. (2007-10-04)
    The emergence of digital and computing technologies is arguably the force of the century for innovation in all domains. In design, researchers and practitioners have shown an increasing interest in predicting and examining ...
  • Hill, Glen. (2007-10-04)
    Deploying Martin Heidegger’s thinking on technology, this paper attempts to show an internal contradiction inherent in our technologically oriented approach to sustainable design. Heidegger’s thinking on technology, which ...
  • Leibowitz, Vicki. (2007-10-05)
    Post-Apartheid South Africa is demanding a revised approach to the construction of museums and memory space, seeking to identify a new form of museum that assists in reflecting the history of Apartheid while facilitating ...
  • Kaji-O'Grady, Sandra. (2007-10-05)
    Architects select, specify, organize, integrate and innovate specific technologies. In doing so, architecture also plays a dramatizing role in concealing or revealing the effects and operations of selected technologies. ...
  • Hogben, Paul. (2007-10-05)
    Media advertising, sponsorship deals and office visits are some of the main mechanisms through which manufacturers and suppliers attempt to place their materials and products before architects and find a way into ...
  • Holzer, Dominik. (2007-10-05)
    In contemporary building practice, the hegemony of 2D-based design communication is gradually being challenged by the possibilities offered by integrated 3D design environments and digital interfaces. The upcoming ...
  • Lahoud, Adrian. (2007-10-05)
    Emergence is a well established though highly contested concept in science that is found in a range of disciplines from biology and artificial life to physics and complexity. It is not in doubt that emergence is of ...
  • Lewi, Hannah.; Smith, Wally. (2007-10-05)
    Most accounts of how new technology has transformed the domestic realm focus on the provision of comfort, sanitation and labour-saving devices. In parallel, but typically not visible in these histories, there has been a ...
