Multiflight - Creating Interactive Stairs through Positive Technology
This paper details a pedagogical project which calls for an improved design performance of the existing built environment through the use of smart technology and data-driven design. The project is an investigation into ways in which to improve the performance of a ?pre-selected university building? through the use of a media facade that allows for interactive experiences. Existing problems of the selected building have been identified through observation and research using a rich picture and agi

Assessing the Impact of CAD Tools on Architectural Design Quality - A case study of graduation proje
The current concept of architectural design education in most schools of architecture in Jordan is a blend between manual pen drafting and digital approaches. However, the disconnection between these two methods has resulted in the students' failure to transfer skills learnt through traditional methods to the digital method of CAD. The objective of this study is twofold: to first compare students? attitudes toward using both methods and to then assess the impact of CAD use on the quality of arch

Living on the Edge - Reinventing the amphibiotic habitat of the Mesopotamian Marshlands
The Mesopotamian Marshlands form one of the first landscapes where people started to transform and manipulate the natural environment in order to sustain human habitation. For thousands of years, people have transformed natural ecosystems into agricultural fields, residential clusters and other agglomerated environments to sustain long-term settlement. In this way, the development of human society has been intricately linked to the extraction, processing and consumption of natural resources. The

Digital Construction - Demonstration of Interactive Assembly Using Smart Discrete Papers with RFID a
This paper proposes and examines a new way of cooperation between human workers and machine intelligence in architectural scale construction. For the transfer of construction information between the physical and digital world, mature technologies such as Radio Frequency IDentifier (RFID), and emerging technologies like Augmented Reality (AR) are used in parallel to supplement each other. Dynamic data flow is implemented to synchronize digital and physical models by following the ID signatures of

The Remarkable Bass Reeves
In this video: "While historians posit that the Wild West was nowhere near as wild as Hollywood would have you believe, it was a place where certain lawmen forged reputations as legendary heroes in their pursuit of outlaws. (Although in some cases, such as Wyatt Earp, the lawmen were little better than some of the criminals, see: Wyatt Earp – The Great American… Villain?) As for “The Indomitable Marshal” Bass Reeves, he was a former slave turned Deputy Marshal who captur

Luna Moth - A Web-based Programming Environment for Generative Design
Current Generative Design (GD) tools require installation and regular updates. On top of that, programs that are created using them are stored as files, which have to be moved and shared manually with others. On the other hand, web applications are accessible using just a web browser and they can also store information remotely, meaning that it does not need to be moved and is easily shared with others. Consequently, GD tools should also be available as web applications to get the same functiona

Luna Moth: Supporting Creativity in the Cloud
Algorithmic design allows architects to design using a programming-based approach. Current algorithmic design environments are based on existing computer-aided design applications or building information modeling applications, such as AutoCAD, Rhinoceros 3D, or Revit, which, due to their complexity, fail to give architects the immediate feedback they need to explore algorithmic design. In addition, they do not address the current trend of moving applications to the cloud to improve their availab

3.2.1 Remarks

  1. By ‘contains’, we mean that we can find part of the surface that is homeomorphic to a Möbius band. The edge of the Möbius band does not need to correspond to an edge at the surface, so that a surface without boundary can be non-orientable (as we shall shortly see).

  2. When seeking Möbius bands in a surface, it can be helpful to look at all possible closed curves on the surface and thicken these into bands.

  3. Remember, fro
