  1. 1. Architectural prototypes : modes of design development and architectural practice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jonas Runberger; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture theory; design theory; prototype; performance; effect; affect; architectural design project; parametric model; design solution space; fabrication; production; industrial process; research by design; digital practice; projective practice; generative components; krets; parcel; splinegraft; urbantoys v.2; informed modularity; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Architecture and architectural conservation and restoration Architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Arkitektur och bebyggelsevård Arkitektur;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis is design driven, partly based on case studies in the form of experimental design projects developed mainly within the research and design collective Krets. It constitutes the first half of a PhD project that studies new technologies and techniques within design processes and the production of architecture, especially in relation to collaborative models.

  2. 2. Structurally Informed Architectural Design

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Laurens Luyten; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; architect; structural engineer; architectural design; structural design; conceptual design; design collaboration;

    Abstract : Architectural form and its supporting structure are results of interdependent design processes that do not always develop in harmony: often major outlines of architectural form are decided before structural design is involved. This doctoral work investigates design collaborations between architects and structural engineers in which architecture and structure are designed in mutual agreement, and structural design is able to guide and inspire a creation of architectural form and space.

  3. 3. Daylight Influence on Colour Design Empirical Study on Perceived Colour and Colour Experience Indoors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Maud Hårleman; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; interior colouring; spatial character; natural daylight; verbal description; colour reference box; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Architecture and architectural conservation and restoration Architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Arkitektur och bebyggelsevård Arkitektur;

    Abstract : It is known that one and the same interior colouring will appear different in rooms with windows facing north or facing south, but it is not known how natural daylight from these two compass points affects perceived colour and the ways in which colour is experienced. The objective is to describe the perceived colours to be expected in rooms with sunlight and diffused light, and thus develop a tool for colour design. READ MORE
