AbstractFor centuries architects have carried out shape computations by hand, using informal procedures and the simplest of tools. Over the last two decades, however, they have made increasing use of more formal procedures executed by computers, a development that raises challenging questions of architectural theory and perplexing issues for those concerned with the future of architectural education. In four parts - theoretical foundations, electronic media in the design studio, information delivery systems for design, and knowledge based design systems - this book frames those issues and provides a diversity of perspectives on them.The Electronic Design Studio contains over thirty extensively illustrated contributions that discuss the experiences of universities in the United States, Europe, Japan, Israel, Canada, and Australia with computer-aided architectural (CAAD) design, articulate current theoretical and practical concerns, provide criticism of media and methods, and suggest directions for the future. Architectural educators and architects concerned with the effect of computer technology on the design process will find this book an indispensable reference. As a current review of the state of the art of CAAD and an overview of the major issues, this is the most comprehensive source available.

L'apprentissage des conversations de conception. Analyse exploratoire des pratiques discursives et graphiques médiées par ordinateur.Actions de Recherche Concertées COMMON (ULg) [sponsor]; Roosen, Marie [superviser]; Leclercq, Pierre [superviser]; Klinkenberg, Jean-Marie [president of the jury]; Kormoss, Bernard [member of the jury]; Dondero, Maria Giulia [member of the jury]; Hanrot, Stéphane [member of the jury]; Basso Fossali, Pierluigi [member of the jury]; Luyten, Laurens [member of the jury]; Traverso, Véronique [member of the jury]; et al. (Université de Liège, Liège, Belgique, 2016-09-30)A large proportion of architects’ educational and professional activities take place in the form of informal and formal discussions revolving around design artefacts, such as blueprints, sketches and models. However, there has been little investigation into the multimodal resources mobilized by designers in order to collectively simulate experiments on their projects. In this thesis, we focus on remote mediated-by-computer design conversations in which architects jointly mobilise speech, inscription practices and artefacts handling for the purpose of examining how these function in the negotiation and joint development of architectural design knowledge. On the basis of a cross-cutting theoretical appraisal to the design conversation and on-field observations of remote synchronous meetings between professional designers, this exploratory study aims to describe and define the interactional processes implemented by architects in order to develop a shared reasoning on their project. The cross-disciplinary approach developed in the course of this research results in the formulation of a theoretical and analytical framework for studying the interactional organization behind jointly constructing the meaning of an architectural design. It also offers a better understanding of the fundamental links between graphical and discursive activities in communication between architects, while examining their digital mediations.
