A method for fusion of perceptions is presented. It is based on probabilistic treatment of perception, where perception quantifies the chance an unbiased observer sees an environmental object, and the associated probability can be interpreted as degree of awareness for the object. The approach uniquely accounts for the fact that final...

In this paper we explore the land-use patterns of a historical mixed-use quarter of Istanbul by focusing on the reciprocal relationships of housing and commercial uses. We are concerned with the distribution of land-use patterns based on spatial adjacency and land-use patterns within the buildings. We measure reciprocal relationships of housing...

A method of integration of game mechanics and game dynamics into a user interface for a home automation system as means of reducing the inhabitant’s environmental footprint is described and detailed up to the point of proof of concept. In detail, the paper describes the game framework and the method in which the competitivegame could be balanced...

The consolidation process of old renders with loss of cohesion is nowadays performed usually with inorganic compatible products, such as calcium or barium hydroxide or ethyl silicate. The use of organic consolidants as acrylic or vinilic resins is discouraged due to its physico-chemical incompatibility with the original lime-based renders; these...

An important operation for the conservation of historical renders is the cohesion restitution of the binderaggregate system, based on the use of materials with consolidating properties. Inorganic consolidants are usually preferred to organic ones due to better compatibility and durability. The aim of this work is the experimental...

In the light of energy reduction, transitional spaces are recognised as ways to receive natural light and fresh air. This paper analyses the effects of courtyard and atrium as two types of transitional spaces on heating demand and thermal comfort of a Dutch low-rise dwelling, at current and future climate in 2050. The inclusion of a courtyard...

In general, designing is conceived as a complex, personal, creative and open-ended skill. Performing a well-developed skill is mainly an implicit activity. In teaching, however, it is essential to make explicit. Learning a complex skill like designing is a matter of doing and becoming aware how to do it. For teachers and students therefore, it...

Generative design processes have been the focus of current architectural research and practice largely due to the exploration of the phenomenon of emergence within self-organisation, generative grammars and evolutionary techniques. These techniques have been informing participatory urban design modalities, which are investigated in this paper by...

Analysis of an ambient environment by means of perception is described. The surveillance of an object by human, who watches a scene via a monitor that shows camera sensed information, is investigated. Although the camera sensing process is a deterministic process, human perception of a scene via camera sensed information is a probabilistic...

Cities need to become independent from finite resources, among which fossil fuels. There is great potential to save energy is many cities, however the generation of power is insufficient due to the limited space as a result of urban densities. An energy source less commonly explored is reuse of waste heat from various urban functions. In that...

Various sources indicate that threats to modern cities lie in the availability of essential streams, among which energy. Most cities are strongly reliant on fossil fuels; not one case of a fully self-sufficient city is known. Engineering resilience is the rate at which a system returns to a single steady or cyclic state following a perturbation....

For the establishment of basic requirements and needs a different view on indoor environment quality (IEQ) is required. An integrated approach towards risk assessment of IEQ, in which the focus is on real exposure situations rather than only on single components, will form the basis for creating healthy and comfortable indoor environments....

Collaboration between the Universities of Technology in Delft and Eindhoven has resulted in the development of a new concept for natural air conditioning of buildings. According to the so-called Climate Responsive Architecture developed in this research, the design of the indoor climate system, building physics, and services are linked to an...

This "designers' manual" is made during the TIDO-course AR0531 Smart & Bioclimatic Design. A short and concise overview of the different types of systems that provide a renewable source of energy for a building seems to be missing. This guide attempts to fill the gap and to provide answers to such questions. A comparison of the energy generating...

This "designers' manual" is made during the TIDO-course AR0531 Smart & Bioclimatic Design. The BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM)can be used to measure and certify the buildings environmental performance. This book aims to provide readers with a basic understanding of BREEAM, by answering several questions, like what is the background...

Thermisch comfort is belangrijk. Voor het ontwerpen van het binnenklimaat, dimensioneren van klimaatinstallaties en beoordelen van het binnenklimaat in de praktijk is een comfortabel en gezond binnenklimaat één van de belangrijkste uitgangspunten. Simulaties van het ontwerp of metingen in praktijksituaties worden getoetst aan comfortcriteria....
