Drivers initiate a discretionary lane change when they perceive an anticipated improvement in their own driving condition from moving to another lane. However, such a lane change can slow down other vehicles on the target lane, and even worse initiate a disturbance. In this work, we argue that the blocking effect triggered by individual lane...

The project strives to imagine a district of commoning in Warsaw, where the common praxis is to be fueled by capturing the desires of visiting subjects. It is followed by an investigation of the relations of space and desire, finally culminating in the design of a cinema, which is to be a centrepiece of the desiring district.

The paper addresses the topic of architectural intelligence whose sole purpose is to create affordances and make experience ‘stand on its own’, apart from architecture and distinct from the architect. The principles of sensation constitute the principles of composition of an existential niche whose structure reveals the genetic conditions of...

Social commitments are recognized as an abstraction that enables flexible coordination between autonomous agents. We make these contributions. First, we introduce and formalize a concept of a maintenance commitment, a kind of social commitment characterized by a maintenance condition whose truthhood an agent commits to maintain. This concept...

Negotiations in urban development projects can take a long time, going back and forward to the designer many times, even leading to stalemate situations. Requirements can be set intuitively, without knowing what the side effects of the constraints will be for the urban development. On top of that, approval of all stakeholders is needed to be...

Around the world, child helplines through their services provide a safe and confidential space for children to be heard and empowered. The Dutch Kindertelefoon is one of such helplines providing counselling services to children via call and chat all year round. In this thesis, we explore the design of a conversational agent for training...

Within traditional design processes, decisions are often made based on individualistic values and late-stage assessments conducted on a predefined set of design alternatives potentially leading to suboptimal design decisions and conflicts. The issues are further amplified by the growing complexity of construction project management where an...

Deliberation over goals is a fundamental feature of intelligent agent systems. In this article we provide pragmatic but principled mechanisms for quantifying the level of completeness of goals in a Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) agent. Our approach leverages previous work on resource and effects summarization which we extend by accommodating both...

Simulation is a useful tool for evaluating behavioral interventions when the adoption rate among a population is uncertain. Individual agent models are often prohibitively expensive, but, unlike stochastic models, allow studying compliance heterogeneity. In this paper we demonstrate the feasibility of evaluating behavioral intervention...

Our contemporary world is filled with sensors, from weather stations to infrasound facilities and seismic monitoring stations. These sensors constitute a specific spatial and architectural reality in the Critical Zone and introduce the idea of the territory as a sensing device. The Critical Zone is a thin layer of several hundred meters thick...

The chapter draws on the anti-substantivist and anti-hylomorphic legacy of two significant Deleuze and Guattari’s interlocutors: Raymond Ruyer and Gilbert Simondon. Ruyer vehemently opposed the logic of mechanicism with- out regressing to (active) vitalism. His masterpiece Neofinalism, yet to be fully appreciated in architectural circles, is an...

BACKGROUND: The Human-Centered Design methodology advocates VR prototyping, as an effective tool to evaluate concepts in a cost-efficient, time-saving way. It is the question of whether it works in the development of a product intended to increase privacy while flying. OBJECTIVE: The current study aims at the application of virtual reality on...

Within the context of Hong Kong, it is discovered that the extremely compressed landscape of Hong Kong gives rise to a potential that people would negotiate and define their territories through their habits. In a sense, the conventional practice of architecture in Hong Hong has been transformed and adapted to the notion of compression. Whereby,...

Athens is a city that has grown immensely after its establishment as a capital, from around 7.000 inhabitants in 1834 to around 3,1 million in 2019. After 2006, due to various economic and political reasons, mainly through the implementation of additional taxation in the building sector and in property ownership, building activities have...

This project is an attempt to bring back play, from the mere simulation it is now, to a creative force that it once was. It questions whether the entertainment park is still relevant in contemporary society and whether it can be reimagined and transformed from a scripted to a more unscripted arena of action. The aim of this project is to create...

A zero free length (ZFL) spring is a spring with special properties, which is commonly used in static balancing. Existing methods to create ZFL springs all have their specific drawbacks, which rises to the need of a new method to create such a spring. A method is proposed to design planar ZFL springs with specified stiffness (250–750 N/m)...

We present an interface for eliciting sets of acceptable gambles on a three-outcome possibility space, discuss an experiment conducted for testing this interface, and present the results of this experiment. Sets of acceptable gambles form a representation for imprecise probabilities that is close to human behavior and eliciting them directly may...

Selective mobility into and out of urban neighbourhoods is one of the main driving forces of segregation. Earlier research has found group differences in who wants to leave or who leaves certain types of neighbourhoods. A factor that has received little attention so far is that some residents will have a desire to leave their neighbourhood,...
