This paper describes the use of a parametric system for generating garden plans that replicate selected socio-spatial characteristics and aesthetic properties of traditional Chinese private gardens (TCPGs). To achieve this, the spatial characteristics of three historic TCPGs are first mathematically derived using connectivity analysis, a variation of a space syntax technique. The data developed through this process is then used to shape the rules of a parametric system to generate new garden plans with similar spatial connectivity values and structures. While these new plans capture some of the socio-spatial features of the TCPG, the other important characteristic of these gardens is a particular level of visual complexity. Using fractal analysis, the characteristic visual complexity of the newly generated garden plans is then compared with the historic cases, to assess the success of the system in aesthetic terms. Through this three-stage process (syntactical derivation, parametric generation and fractal analysis) the paper demonstrates a method for capturing selected spatial and aesthetic properties in a parametric system and also provides new tools for landscape design in the context of specific historical sites and approaches.

The combination of Space Syntax and Shape Grammar approaches to design potentially offers a rigorous way of first understanding a characteristic instance of architectural configuration (say, a set of designs by an architect or a particular building type) and then producing variations of that instance. This paper presents a method that commences with a justified plan graph-grammar-based analysis of an architectural design, and then uses a grammatical interpretation of the structure of this syntax. Using this graph as a starting point, it is then possible to develop a 3D shape grammar of the same building. In this way, both syntactical and formal information are captured as part of the sequential analysis. This combined analytical approach can support a better understanding of an architectural style and its design instances as well as the generative capability of these two computational theories ¿ Space Syntax and Shape Grammar. The paper introduces this combined method and then demonstrates it using 10 house designs by Glenn Murcutt.

The Kiliç Ali Pasa Mosque in Istanbul was completed in the late sixteenth century and it is today regarded as one of architect Sinan¿s most important works. Like many of Sinan¿s designs it has been the subject of detailed analysis in the past, with historians offering theories to explain its visual properties and how they differ from those of his previous works. However, such theories have remained largely untested because of the difficulty of quantitatively analysing the building's intricate formal, ornamental and material properties. The present paper uses computational fractal analysis to overcome this problem. This method, as it is applied in the paper, derives a non-integer measure of the characteristic complexity of three hierarchical layers in visual information in the facades of the Kiliç Ali Pasa Mosque. Through this process the paper not only provides important quantitative results which can be used to test past theories about the building, but these new measures are then compared with those that have previously been developed, using the same method, for Sinan¿s Süleymaniye Mosque.

The combination of Space Syntax and Shape Grammar approaches to design potentially offers a rigorous way of first understanding a characteristic instance of architectural configuration (say, a set of designs by an architect or a particular building type) and then producing variations of that instance. This paper presents a method that commences with a justified plan graph-grammar-based analysis of an architectural design, and then uses a grammatical interpretation of the structure of this syntax. Using this graph as a starting point, it is then possible to develop a 3D shape grammar of the same building. In this way, both syntactical and formal information are captured as part of the sequential analysis. This combined analytical approach can support a better understanding of an architectural style and its design instances as well as the generative capability of these two computational theories - Space Syntax and Shape Grammar. The paper introduces this combined method and then demonstrates it using 10 house designs by Glenn Murcutt.

Historians and critics argue that a key characteristic of late twentieth century Australian regionalist architecture is the close visual connection it creates between the interior and the landscape. While various design properties are allegedly responsible for this connection, one of the most tangible of these is associated with the use of transparent and layered elements in a building's façade. Indeed, as exemplified in the work of Glenn Murcutt, the importance of façade transparency is a recurring theme in Australian architecture. But is it really that significant? In this paper, computational fractal analysis is used to measure the difference between the visual complexity of opaque and transparent depictions of façades. By comparing these two façade conditions, first in sets of elevations derived from 10 of Murcutt's houses and then in a detailed review of one of Murcutt's most iconic works, the Marie-Short House, this paper calculates the visual impact of transparency on the characteristic complexity of Murcutt's architecture.

Prospect-Refuge theory argues that human environmental preferences are attuned to seeking spaces that offer a balance of outlook and enclosure. The first and best-known architectural application of this theory was Hildebrand's proposition that the emotional power of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture arises from a distinct pattern of spatial enclosure and outlook. Hildebrand presented Wright's textile-block houses as ideal examples of this prospect-refuge pattern, which he called the "Wright Space". That argument has since been widely repeated and even used as a design formula in contemporary guides, but there is no quantitative evidence that its catalyst, the Wright Space, actually exists. Using isovist fields, this paper undertakes a computational and mathematical analysis of the spatio-visual properties of paths through five of Wright's textile-block houses. For each house a comprehensive two-dimensional analysis, supplemented with selected three-dimensional data, is used to derive ten measures of spatial properties with which to assess Hildebrand's application of Prospect-Refuge theory. Through this process the paper investigates whether the Wright Space exists, and if it conforms to the four key prospect-refuge related properties identified by Hildebrand. The paper concludes that some evidence exists to support the existence of the "Wright Space", however the strength and consistency of the pattern remains questionable. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper describes the results of a protocol study exploring problem-solution coevolution in a parametric design environment (PDE). The study involved eight participants who completed a defined architectural design task using Rhino and Grasshopper software: a typical PDE. The method of protocol analysis was employed to study the cognitive behaviors that occurred while these designers were working in the PDE. By analyzing the way in which the designers shifted between "problem" and "solution" spaces in the PDE, characteristics of the coevolutionary design process are identified and discussed. Results of this research include two potentially significant observations. First, the coevolution process occurs frequently within the design knowledge level (i.e., when using Rhino) and within the rule algorithm level (i.e., when using Grasshopper) of the parametric design process. Second, the designers' coevolution process was focused on the design knowledge level at the beginning of the design session, while they focused more on the rule algorithm level toward the end of the design session. These results support an improved understanding of the design process that occurs in PDEs.

Historians and critics argue that the innate appeal of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture can be traced to the way in which it balances the properties of outlook, enclosure and mystery. Such properties, it has been theorised, are responsible for the positive emotional response felt by inhabitants of Wright's buildings. Hildebrand explains these psychological responses by proposing the existence of a particular pattern of prospect-refuge characteristics: the ¿Wright Space¿. In response to this claim, the present paper uses isovists to analyse the spatial and visual experience of moving through five of Wright's Usonian houses to seek evidence of this pattern. The mathematical properties of these isovists provide measures for comparing the spatio-visual character of different locations. The results of this research show some evidence of the spatial pattern identified by Hildebrand but it is insufficient to class this as either unique to Wright or especially significant.

The presence of locations that possess distinct spatial-cognitive features (salient landmarks) is a fundamental necessity for supporting navigation. Embedding formal or structural variability sufficient to create such landmark locations is therefore an important consideration in the design of large urban and architectural spaces. Despite the availability of diverse theories that seek to identify the characteristics of a salient landmark, relatively few experimental techniques are available to empirically evaluate saliency in a given architecture plan. This study is therefore motivated by the development of an ability to measure spatial distinctiveness during the architectural design and modelling process. The information from such an analysis can prove useful for evaluating the way in which a design provides support for wayfinding and spatial appeal. Statistical summaries obtained from the three-dimensional (3D) isovists are compared using principal component analysis to differentiate monotonous regions from the more structurally distinct ones. The experiments reported in the paper demonstrate novel utilization of the isovist concept to capture spatial properties and comparison of structural saliency among two well-known architectural designs. Central contributions of the paper include the novel experimentation technique of capturing and utilizing 3D isovists, its interpretation and the quantitative methodology behind saliency computation. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Prospect-refuge theory proposes that environments which offer both outlook and enclosure provoke not only feelings of safety but also of spatially derived pleasure. This theory, which was adopted in environmental psychology, led Hildebrand to argue for its relevance to architecture and interior design. Hildebrand added further spatial qualities to this theory - including complexity and order - as key measures of the environmental aesthetics of space. Since that time, prospect-refuge theory has been associated with a growing number of works by renowned architects, but so far there is only limited empirical evidence to substantiate the theory. This paper analyses and compares the methods used in 30 quantitative attempts to examine the validity of prospect-refuge theory. Its purpose is not to review the findings of these studies, but to examine their methodological bases and biases and comment on their relevance for future research in this field. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Architects John Hejduk and Peter Eisenman were members of the "New York Five" and of the famous late modernist group, the "Whites." Early in their careers, both Hejduk and Eisenman proposed that form or shape (the aesthetics of architecture) was more important than program (the function of architecture) and they designed experimental houses to demonstrate this. The present article uses the computational fractal method to analyze 78 design drawings to develop a mathematical description of the visual complexity of five early domestic designs by each architect. These data will provide an important basis for empirical comparisons of buildings using characteristic visual dimensions. Through this process it is possible to test a variety of hypotheses about the visual and formal qualities of both architects' works. Among the article's conclusions are that the mathematical data typically supports both architect's claims about the formal properties of their designs while challenging several assumptions about scale and Deconstructivist architecture. © 2013 Baywood Publishing Co., Inc.

This paper identifies and describes shoppers' attitudes and behaviours in relation to retail environments. It maps the profiles of shoppers, identifying significant changes, including the growth of mixed development and 'green' retailing. The literature is used to identify and define the attitudes and behaviours that characterise shoppers' interaction with Australian shopping malls. These are then used to inform the design and conduct of research involving eight focus groups of consumers in two tightly defined geographical areas. Each investigation is analysed using appropriate qualitative or quantitative techniques and the results thereafter interpreted and explained. Results show that there are significant differences in shoppers' attitudes to retail experiences and the spaces in which they occur. These vary according to gender, age, level of household income, occupation and level of education. Moreover, these differences are interrelated, rendering their implications for retailers similarly complex. This paper proposes that designs of retail spaces are only economically justifiable if they provide an acceptable mix of experiences for the full range of consumers using them. Understanding the complex interplay between the expectations of the various consumer groups and their consequent requirements is central to decision-making in this regard. This research is part of a larger study, believed to be the first critical analysis of Australian consumer attitudes towards retail spaces in terms of demographic groups. The ideas presented in this study could have wide-reaching possibilities for empirical studies on the socio-cultural role of malls, outside of Australia. © Common Ground, Anthony Philip Williams, Graham Brewer , Michael Ostwald, Raichel Le Goff, All Rights Reserved.
