About this book

This book represents an invaluable and up-to-date international exchange of research, case studies and best practice to tackle the challenges of digital technology, computer-aided design, 3D modeling, prototyping machines and computational design. With contributions from leading experts in the field of industrial design and cultural heritage, it is split into three parts. The first part explores basic rules of design, design models and shape grammar, including the management of complex forms, and proves that innovative concepts may be derived from organic models using generative design. The second part then investigates responsive design, describing how to manage the changing morphologies of buildings through pre-programmed mechanisms of real-time response and feedback embedded in inhabitable spaces. Lastly, the third part focuses on digital heritage and its capability to increase the interaction and manipulation of object and concepts, ranging from augmented reality to modeling generative tools. The book gathers peer-reviewed papers presented at the eCAADe (Education and Research in Computer-Aided Architectural Design in Europe) Regional International Symposium, held in Milan, Italy, in 2015.
