Visual Schemas: Pragmatics of Design Learning in Foundations Studios

Ozkar, Mine
Visual schemas are prequels to shape rules in formalizing the pedagogical discussions in foundational design studios.


Computational Models in Architecture: Understanding Multi-Dimensionality and Mapping
Sorguç, Arzu (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-08-01)
The aim of this paper is to discuss computational thinking and parametric design and thus "what model is" in the realm of mathematics in architecture. Here we investigate how multi-dimensionality and reference systems should be contemplated, along with what mapping is and how it is related with algorithms in computational design. Set theory and functional relations are re-visited and similarity/similitude concepts and the importance of nondimensional parameters relating different reference systems (interpre...
Visual Structuring for Generative Design Search Spaces
Abbas, Günsu Merin; Gürsel Dino, İpek (2016-06-17)
With generative design strategies, the act of design, the problem-solving process, and the interaction, understanding and representation of design artefacts have changed. As such strategies entail a large number of possible design solutions, they also expand the design search space immensely. In addition, due to the automated design generation process, the interaction of the designer through the design process has decreased. This research problematizes two major points as (1) the broad design spaces of gene...
Across the Traces: Lawrence Jordan's Animated Documents
Pinar, Ekin (SAGE Publications, 2020-03-01)
Since the early 1960s, Lawrence Jordan has appropriated a variety of Victorian engravings transforming them into experimental animations through the use of cut-out stop-motion techniques. In their outmoded style and technique, the dense tapestry of collaged ephemera begins to function as indices of their original Victorian context and its printing processes. But the stop-motion manipulation also renders these indexical documents surreal through the juxtaposition of apparently unrelated images. This amounts ...
Bergman projections on Besov spaces on balls
Kaptanoglu, HT (Duke University Press, 2005-06-01)
Extended Bergman projections from Lebesgue classes onto all Besov spaces on the unit ball are defined and characterized. Right inverses and adjoints of the projections share the property that they are imbeddings of Besov spaces into Lebesgue classes via certain combinations of radial derivatives. Applications to the Gleason problem at arbitrary points in the ball, duality, and complex interpolation in Besov spaces are obtained. The results apply, in particular, to the Hardy space H-2, the Arveson space, the...
Experimental study on the sensitivity of autocalibration to projective camera model parameters
Hassanpour, Reza; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (2006-04-01)
Existing methods of 3-D object modeling and recovering 3-D data from uncalibrated 2-D images are subject to errors introduced by assumptions about camera parameters and mismatches in finding point pairs in the images. In this study, we experimentally evaluate the effect of each of these assumptions together with the inaccuracy in the measurements in the images. Sensitivity of reconstruction errors to inaccuracies in the estimation of camera parameters and mismatches due to noise in input data is measured us...
