THE DYNAMIC QUALITIES OF INNOVATIVE FACADES

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №2 (66) June, 2019

The article considers issues connected with the expression of dynamics in contemporary architecture. The main trends in the representation of dynamism are: artistic imitation of architectural form dynamism, real dynamics based on transformation and/or mechanical motion of form, dynamics of façade elements (intelligent facades), dynamic light installations (media facades). The dynamic qualities of an architectural object (whether illusory or real) facilitate, through its morphology, the artistic and figurative comprehension of its composition.

GEOMETRIZATION OF FORMS AND STRUCTURES OF CIVIL ENGINEERING OBJECTS AND PROCESSES

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №4 (56) December, 2016

The article considers systems approaches to mathematical modelling of a real object (physical situation), applications of methods from the theory of geometrical modelling (ТGМ), nonlinear analysis of civil engineering objects geometrization problems, basic directions in the generalisation of geometric modelling, and issues in the parametrization of engineering models. The author also considers possibilities of generalisation of classical methods, including when going over from objects in three-dimensional space to varieties of arbitrary structure and dimensionality, replacement of the traditional method of projection with generalised methods of representation. Emphasis is made on mutual enrichment between the geometries of the original and the modelas a result of construction this or that reversible representation following from the formal equality if the object and the model. Specially noted are the possibilities of contemporary ITs, use of specialized automated facilities for processing spatial information and construction 3D digital models, and stages are identified in the organisation and realization of computations. The process of mathematical modelling is analysed. Consideration is given to the general flowchart of mathematical modelling and its main components are discussed. Examples from civil engineering practice are given to illustrate the characteristic stages in the process of mathematical modelling.

ISSUES IN MATHEMATIZATION OF ARCHITECTURE IN THE POST-NONCLASSICAL PERIOD

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №1 (53) March, 2016

The evolution of civilisation is associated with architecture. Architects embody ideas in images and construct various forms and spatial configurations, description of which by mathematical methods and computer simulations provides the clarity, accuracy and structure that are not always achievable verbally. Mathematics is by right among the major achievements of humankind, and its problems, whether solved or unsolved, have been guiding and stimulating human creativity for many years. Trends in contemporary mathematization of architecture are defined by the productive capabilities provided by information and mathematical modelling technologies.

GEOMETRIC MODELLING OF ARCHITECTURAL FORMS AND URBAN PLANNING STRUCTURES

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №2 (50) June, 2015

As well as any type of modelling, geometric modelling of architectural forms and urban planning structures is determined by a series of identifying signs: purpose, object, means and methods, theoretical importance and practical application. Modelling as a method of studying objects of cognition by means of models is realised by constructing a conditional image perceived through certain properties/characteristics as an analogue of these objects, i.e. a model is regarded as a homomorphic representation of the original/modelled object. The resemblance of the model to the original is always incomplete: the model only approximately mirrors some essential properties of the original. A real object can have various homomorphic models. It should be borne in mind that the nature of models can be different: physical/material models in the form of samples, designs, mockups; sign-based models such as geometric/graphic representations, diagrams, charts; mathematical, presented as formulas, symbolical notations; information models including text descriptions and databases.

INNOVATIVE ASPECTS OF ARCHITECTURAL ACTIVITY. THE SYNERGY APPROACH

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №3 (47) September, 2014

Innovative development of the economy in the context of sufficient information (knowledge, know-how, applied methods and technologies, materials) and global communications (versatility and availability of information sources, international transfer and borrowing of innovations, hi-tech manufacture, intellectual products) causes radical (essential) changes in architecture and town planning (new concepts and styles, goals and objectives, ways and methods of realisation).

MODELLING OF A SPACE OF COMPROMISE IN ARCHITECTURE AND TOWN-PLANNING

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №2 (46) June, 2014

The article considers a development concept for the architectural environment of a deprived area as a "space of compromise» from the perspective of a systems approach to the structural planning of basic elements and relationships between central subspaces based on mathematical modelling of social, economic, technological and other processes and city environment objects. The authors identify hidden mechanisms underlying the emergence and evolution of such environmental systems through identification of systemic relations, factors, and constructions. Tendencies are noted towards organic embedding of architectural elements into the environment resulting in integration of natural and anthropogenous landscapes (similarity of forms in architecture and design to natural forms).

THE SINERGETIC APPROACH TO ARCHITECTURAL ACTIVITY

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №2 (42) June, 2013

The modelling of complex developing systems of a natural, technical and social character (for example, city space) in the modern-day context is determined based on the principles of synergetics. It is therefore important to clearly understand the methodological foundations and technologies of such modelling. Synergetics describes the mechanism of self-organisation of complex systems in the condition of their instability. This makes it essential to define the factors and conditions that identify transients (including in architectural and town-planning formations): bifurcation points and possible fluctuations, probable scenarios of development, and cascade rhythm parameters that determine the pace characteristics. Also, noteworthy is the potential of information (computer) support for research, analysis and modelling of complex systems.
