Design Implications of Model-Generated Urban Data
The staggering complexity of urban environment and long timescales in the causal mechanisms prevent designers to fully understand the implications of their design interventions. In order to investigate these causal mechanisms ...
Reifying luxury, gold to golden: how the showroom became a digital showreel : From object (gold) to experience (golden): experiencing luxury by abstracting the object
This article focuses on the notion of space of luxury. It explores the passage of time; in how showrooms and flagship stores, embedded in the tradition of symbolism and paradigms of symbolic elements, intersect with ...
Editorial : In Pursuit of Luxury
Opportunities for financing sustainable development using complementary local currencies
Financing building retrofit projects that contribute to climate change mitigation has always represented a significant barrier. With 28% of global emissions coming from existing buildings, it is of paramount importance to ...
Reducing Procrastination while Improving Performance: A Wiki-powered Experiment with Students
(ACM Press, 2019-08-22)
Students in higher education are traditionally requested to produce various pieces of written work during the courses they undertake. When students' work is submitted online as a whole, both the ethically questionable act ...
Investigation of the dependency of the drivers’ emotional experience on different road types and driving conditions
The growing sophistication of technologies and sociological advances are major causes for the dramatic change the automotive sector is currently undergoing. To address changes from a human-centered design perspective an ...
Author-Driven Approaches to Computational Narrative Design for Games
(Springer Verlag, 2019-06-27)
Accessible Head Mounted Displays (HMD) have provided mass access to Extended Reality (XR) content as never before. One of the key complaints from HMD owners, however, is the lack of substantial high-quality content (Moore ...
Improving Building Energy Efficiency through Measurement of Building Physics Properties Using Dynamic Heating Tests
Buildings contribute to nearly 30% of global carbon dioxide emissions, making a significant impact on climate change. Despite advanced design methods, such as those based on dynamic simulation tools, a significant discrepancy ...
Lessons learnt from design, off-site construction and performance analysis of deep energy retrofit of residential buildings
The article introduces the process of deep energy retrofit carried out on a residential building in the UK, using a ‘TCosy’ approach in which the existing building is completely surrounded by a new thermal envelope. It ...
