Material Processuality: Alternative Grounds for Design Research
Tönük Kruıthof, Damla (Informa UK Limited, 2020-01-01)
This article opens discussion on the positivist epistemology underlying the understandings of materials in design research that have been brought along as a result of theory and methods inherited from engineering and psychology. Examining the ambitions of work that seeks to operationalize knowledge created by these methods in the design process, we propose that attending to the processuality of material forms is a more adequate way for design research to capture the multiplicity of materials. We develop thi...

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...
