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

    Author : Jonas Runberger; Katja Grillner; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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; Architecture; 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.

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

    Author : Maud Hårleman; Jadwiga Krupinska; José Luis Caivano; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; interior colouring; spatial character; natural daylight; verbal description; colour reference box; Architecture; 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

  4. 4. Energy efficiency in heritage buildings : Conservation approaches and their impact on energy efficiency measures

    Author : Tomas Örn; Agatino Rizzo; Sofia Lidelöw; Andrea Luciani; Elena Lucchi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; Energy efficiency heritage buildings; Arkitektur; Architecture;

    Abstract : The impeding climate change challenge urges for a reduction of energy use in the built environment. Buildings account for nearly 40% of the total energy use and about 35% of the greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ice Formwork : The Rationale and Potential of Ice-Based Moulding Systems  for the Production of Complex-Geometry  Precast Concrete

    Author : Vasily Sitnikov; Oliver Tessmann; Tim Ainsworth Anstey; Harald Kloft; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ice Formwork; High-Performance Concrete; Digital Fabrication; Refrigeration; Embodied Energy; Grey energy; Carbon Footprint.; Architectural Technology; Arkitekturteknik;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis analyses and makes proposals about adapting the poten-tial of digital means of production to the needs of the concrete industry. More precisely, it aims at fostering the development of sustainable material cycles and the innovation in manufacturing methods in the field of architectural and structural design of ultra-high performance fibre-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC).
