XII. Computational Design Research in Architecture Symposium

21-22 June 2018

Suleyman Demirel University
Architecture Faculty


Convertible Spaces

Human-computer interaction is the domain that refers to the appraisal of evaluation-application-design of interactive computer systems for human use and the main outcomes relating to them. Interactive computer systems cover many disciplines such as computer science, cognitive sciences, design technologies and human engineering. The interaction between interactive computer systems and the user is an important tool in disseminating the idea of “open-ended dialogue from man to man”. It aims to increase the availability of information by computers (focusing on the capability of how the computers learn easily). Today, the development of the Internet and smartphone technologies has led to the emergence of different forms of interaction and user interfaces with more data use (information visualization, social computing, etc.). In addition, HCI systems entering the design world, starting with the computer-assisted design process, in particular, is a formal model for user-centric planning methods, architectural usability and user experience in creative workflows. In many ways HCI is now in a “UX Experience” and tends to be the “intelligent spaces” of the future. Both artificial intelligence and architectural design combined “smart and can turn into spaces” with different design methodologies will be developed as future venues. Between HCI and UX design, “Convertible Spaces” applications are thought to be more design-oriented with artificial intelligence, scientific research, developing user’s experimental conception, and are foreseen to give a new direction to the concept of future design.
