  • Design as semiosis: A design mechanism for place branding 

    Krasaki, Eirini ( Qatar Univesrity Press , 2021 , Conference Paper)
    The described design methodology combines parametric design, data analysis, algorithmic design and semiotics theory to systematically analyze urban reality. The analysis leads to a creation of a nebula of data which ...
  • Urbanism Beyond Cognition: On Design and Machine Learning 

    Bottazzi, Roberto ( Qatar Univesrity Press , 2021 , Conference Paper)
    It could be argued that the introduction of new technologies always shifts the 'epistemological horizon' of the different fields they impact. New instruments allow expanding the range of parameters defining a discipline's ...
  • Digital Master Builders: Disruptive construction technologies 

    Block, Philippe ( Qatar Univesrity Press , 2021 , Conference Paper)

  • Cumulative, Collaborative, Disruptive ; Architectural geometry in research, practice, and its imminent mainstream future 

    Bhooshan, Vishu; Bhooshan, Shajay ( Qatar Univesrity Press , 2021 , Conference Paper)
    Solutions to the significant social, ecological and economic opportunities and problems of 21st century architecture and urbanism involve a vast number of variables. These solutions will require the use of data-driven ...
  • Crossing the Rubicon: Tevere Cavo, an Urban Project for Rome 

    Saggio, Antonino ( Qatar Univesrity Press , 2021 , Conference Paper)
    We believe that the new frontiers of Information Technology have to deal with the central role of Infrastructures in the existing city. Indeed, this new generation of infrastructures will allow the 'redirection' of the ...
  • Medinas: From Vernacular to Smart Sustainable Cities and Buildings 

    Fadli, Fodil ( Qatar Univesrity Press , 2021 , Conference Paper)
    Cities are the most prominent agile and resilient complex systems that evolved over time and space. Many of them survived for centuries, some for more than two millennia, like the Medinas of the MENA region, and they are ...
  • Towards an Artificial Architecture: About Superintelligent Space 

    Morel, Philip ( Qatar Univesrity Press , 2021 , Conference Paper)
    In the essay The Doctors of Tomorrow Will Be Supercomputers, published online at futurism.com, Leary (2017) says doctors will be replaced by artificial intelligence-fed supercomputers. This is in line with many theorists ...
