During the fall semester 2019 The Masters Studio Architecture and Urban Space Design (ARK128 - MPARC programme - Architecture and Civil Engineering) has been working in the field defined between the disciplines of Architecture, Landscape and Infrastructure proposing development projects for the area of Lindholmen, in Gothenburg.</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">Along that journey the students have been moving from the understanding of the specific context through analysis to the translation of that knowledge into cartographies, with the final aim of turning them into design proposals. </span><div><br /></div> <div>If you want to know more about their proposals in themes like Connectivity, Place Making, Green Structures and Cultural identity for the Lindholmen’s Area, then do not hesitate to visit us at this year's exhibition.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>28 students from 11 different countries.</div> <div>Date: Friday 17th January 2020</div> <div>Time: 14:00</div> <div>Place: Stadsbyggnadskontoret, Köpmansgatan 20, Göteborg, Sverige</div> <div>Presentations at 14:00 in Infosalen</div> <div>Exhibition Opening at 15:00 in Kartan- exhibition space</div> <div>The exhibition will be open until the 31st of January</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Welcome!</div> <div>AUSD Team</div> <div>Contact:</div> <div>Joaquim Tarrasó, Course examiner</div> <div><a href="">​​​</a></div>,-docent-lecture.aspx,-docent-lecture.aspxMattias Roupé, Docent lecture<p>SB-S393, seminar room, Sven Hultins Gata 6, Samhällsbyggnad I-II</p><p>​&quot;Communication and collaboration in Virtual Environments&quot;.</p><span style="background-color:initial">Welcome to Mattias Roupés lecture for Docent, Construction Management​.</span><div><br /></div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Abstract</h2> <div>During the design of a new buildings it is necessary for all involved stakeholders to understand, participate, communicate, and collaborate with each other to obtain a high-quality outcome. The most common information media in these processes are documents, descriptions, 2D-drawings and pictures. However, these media can be difficult to interpret and understand and place high cognitive demands on the viewer's ability to transform the information into a self-made mental image of the project. The self-made mental image could also be misinterpreted and differ depending on the individual's background, education, experience and interest. This means that important feedback from the specialists and end-uses can be lost or disappear during the planning, design and construction process. These malfunctions are detected later when it is too late and the built environment is already built.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>One potential solution to this problem is to take advantage of Building Information Models (BIM) and Virtual Reality (VR) instead of traditional 2D-drawings and pictures. In this talk, I will give examples how VR and new a collaborative design system, ViCoDE, facilitates interactive and collaborative design work with immediate feedback from the end-users. The contribution of this work is two folded: presentation of new a collaborative design system and the evaluation of the use of it in a real-life design context, which demonstrate how these new types of technology may facilitate design and construction management. The results show that the multi-touch table and VR-system support better understanding, participation, communication, knowledge sharing and collaboration among the different stakeholders. </div> <div><br /></div> <div>Example then ViCoDE is used during design of a school:</div> <div><a href=";">;</a></div> <div>BIM and VR on construction site: </div> <div><a href="">​</a></div>,-Urban-design-and-planning.aspx,-Urban-design-and-planning.aspxJonathan Geib, Urban design and planning<p>SB-H5, lecture hall, Sven Hultins Gata 6, Samhällsbyggnad I-II</p><p>​Critical indirectness as a design approach in participatory practice.

As a researcher, educator and designer, she specializes in participatory and critical practices of design. Previously in Sweden, she worked at Konstfack College of Arts Crafts and Design, at KTH Royal Institute of Technology School of Achitecture, at the national PhD school Designfakulteten, and at the Interactive Institute. Trained as a designer and architect, she has worked in design consultancies and corporate research in the US and Europe, and her PhD is in interaction design. She has led, published and exhibited widely through interdisciplinary and international research projects in the areas of politically-engaged design, feminist design studies, sustainable development, smart materials, and interactive spaces.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Examiner: Fredrik Nilsson</div> <div>Main supervisor: Erling Björgvinsson</div> <div>Assistant supervisor: Kristina Grange</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Grading Committee:</div> <div>Professor Markus Miessen, HOK - Academy of Design and Crafts, Gothenburg</div> <div>Associate Senior Lecturer Emma Nilsson, Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University</div> <div>Associate Professor Meike Schalk, Arkitektur, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm</div> <div></div> and Resources<p>SB-H3, lecture hall, Sven Hultins Gata 6, Samhällsbyggnad I-II</p><p>​Public lecture of Professor Walter Unterrainer.</p> modelling of reinforced concrete structures<p>Virtual Development Laboratory, laboratory, Chalmers Tvärgata 4C, M-huset</p><p>​Adam Sciegaj, Doctoral Student at Structural Engineering​ defends his doctoral thesis &quot;Multiscale modelling of reinforced concrete structures&quot;.</p>​Opponent: Professor Adnan Ibrahimbegovic, University of Technology Compiegne/ Sorbonne Universities<div>Examiner: Karin Lundgren ACE</div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Read more​</a></div> <div><br /></div>
