QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILT-UP RESIDENTAL AREA DEVELOPMENT

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №1 (49) March, 2015

The article discusses a methodology for assessing the feasibility of built-up area development. The key parameter for selecting areas with potential for development is the degree of physical wear of the housing. The methodology has been tested with reference to neighbourhoods in the Uralmash and Elmash boroughs of Yekaterinburg.

INTEGRATION OF MATHEMATICAL METHODS INTO ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №1 (41) March, 2013

The article deals with mathematical methods in architecture. It formulates and considers a range of issues relating to the integration of mathematical methods into architectural design. The study carried out by the authors suggests the following conclusions. Firstly, at the moment there are no conditions in the architectural science that could ensure its mathematisation with subsequent progress of any methods thus worked out to the level of architectural design. Secondly, there is a language barrier between architecture and mathematics. Thirdly, architects and mathematicians operate abstractions of differing scope.

The authors believe that the establishment of «Architectural Mathematics» as a discipline would enable the earlier stated problems connected with the integration of mathematics to be approached in a meaningful and comprehensive manner. The first steps in the development of architectural mathematics should involve its introduction into architectural training as a study discipline rather than establishing it as a separate area of architectural science. This would allow would-be architects to understand the place of mathematical methods in architectural design, produce essential models of dialogue between architecture and mathematics at the level of introduction to the speciality, and train those who would then participate in the creation of a "big" architectural mathematics.
In conclusion, the authors propose a concept of «Architectural Mathematics» as a discipline within the framework of a course of architectural design.
