  • Your Lectures (in slides) are a great synthesis to review the architecture. Right now I am study to get the Architectural License. Do you have a Lecture for Building Systems? . As an Immigrant, taking the Architectural Registration Examination in English as my second language. I really appreciate you capacity of synthesis and simplicity. Only who masters our profession can do this. Thank you very much.

Transcript of "Architectural Professional Practice - Programming"

  1. 1. Architectural Programming
  2. 3. Architectural Programming Part 1
  3. 4. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>What is architectural programming? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Architectural programming is the research and decision-making process that defines the problem(s) to be solved by design. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Architectural programming is basically a research process to gather, analyze and document relevant information (human factors, functions & activities, relationships, cost, ordinances, site, climate…etc.) and then reach a conclusion. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Architectural programming establishes the appropriate criteria for the proper design solution (a guide), to identify the forces that influences the design (Both Internal and External). </li></ul></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>Architectural programming is a structured research and problem-solving process used to identify, examine, and elaborate upon the various needs underlying a design project . </li></ul><ul><li>The architectural program is the foundation for a creative, meaningful, and - ultimately - useful architectural solution . </li></ul><ul><li>Gary JD Gingras, M.Arch. </li></ul>DEFINITION
  5. 6. The stages of architectural design <ul><li>Project Selection - define the goals (wants, needs, requirements, etc.); </li></ul><ul><li>Programming - research and document the related issues (facts, problems, potentialities, etc.); </li></ul><ul><li>Preliminary Design - in a schematic form, acknowledge the impact of those issues on the goals; </li></ul><ul><li>Design Development - interpret the spatial expression of the design, goals and issues; </li></ul><ul><li>Final Design - resolve the issues, and the inter-relationships, of the design, goals, and issues; </li></ul><ul><li>Documentation - prepare the contract drawings and specifications; </li></ul><ul><li>Construction - facilitate and monitor the fabrication and assembly of the built environment; and, </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation - assess the quality of the built environment and its impact on the project's goals and users. </li></ul>
  6. 7. HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURAL PROGRAMMING <ul><li>Self-conscious vs. unself-conscious design (Christopher Alexander: Notes on the Synthesis of Form) </li></ul><ul><li>Post war Baby boom  U.S. schools  CRS as pioneers (Pena & Caudill) </li></ul><ul><li>William Pena article in “Architectural Record”; “ Architectural Analysis—Prelude to Design ” in 1959 </li></ul><ul><li>Architectural Analysis  Architectural Programming </li></ul><ul><li>Programming recognized by AIA as part of architect’s services  incorporated into standard contracts & national architectural licensing examination </li></ul><ul><li>William Pena Book “Problem Seeking” in 1969 </li></ul><ul><li>The Concept of “Performance Specification”  avoiding preconceived forms/designs </li></ul>
  7. 9. Programming & Design <ul><li>Overlapping </li></ul>Programming Design <ul><li>Professional Issues & Concerns: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Programming limits creativity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Programming is too complicated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Programming increases cost & wastes of energy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Programming as Analysis vs. Design as Synthesis </li></ul>Dr. Yasser Mahgoub DESIGN PROGRAMMING
  8. 11. IMPORTANCE OF PROGRAMMING <ul><li>To provide the designer with the information needed to achieve the best possible solution to the problem at hand. </li></ul><ul><li>The wide range and variety of projects and building types the architect is asked to design makes it impossible to provide training for all building types. Programming is the tool that enables architects to handle this wide range of buildings. </li></ul><ul><li>The critical importance of the architect’s role in shaping the built environment. </li></ul><ul><li>To avoid major mistakes in design decisions , which can be very expensive to correct. </li></ul>

  30. 41. Architectural Programming CRS Matrix
  31. 42. A Brief History of CRS In 1946, William Caudill and John Rowlett , two architecture professors at the College of Texas A&M , became partners and founded the architecture firm of Caudill and Rowlett in Austin, Texas. In 1948 Wallie Scott , Caudill' s former student, joined the partnership and the firm became Caudill Rowlett Scott , Architects. The same year, William Peña , another former student of Caudill and Rowlett, became the fourth partner of the firm but requested to leave the firm's name unchanged . During the first two years, most of the firm's work came through the design of houses in Texas and Oklahoma. But in 1948, in large part due to Caudill's book Space for Teaching (1941) and John Rowlett's degrees in architecture and education, Caudill Rowlett Scott (CRS) landed their first project with an elementary school in Blackwell, Oklahoma. Through this project, CRS pioneered the revolution in schoolhouse design that would come into fruition across the United States during the 1950s.
  32. 43. A Brief History of CRS By the 1960s, CRS had become an integrated design firm, famous for its team approach which combined the efforts of architects, engineers, and planners . The firm ventured into higher education and health care facilities projects during this decade. It was also at this time that the architectural projects became international in scope as CRS began work in Saudi Arabia. In 1971, the firm went public under its new name, CRS Design Associates . During this decade, the firm continued to expand as it acquired several smaller companies, including Interlock, Inc., a management consulting firm; A.A. Matthews (AAM), a construction engineering firm; and Stevens, Thompson & Runyan (STR), an engineering company. Dr. Ghaith Pharaon, a Saudi multimillionaire, created headlines in 1978 when he purchased 20 percent of the corporation's stock. CRS Group, Inc. became CRSS in 1983 when it acquired J.E. Sirrine, a process engineering company. Ironically, William Caudill died the same year, without witnessing this last transformation in what once had been a small town business to the largest architecture/engineering/construction corporation in the U.S. The CRS Center was approved by the Board of Regents of the Texas A&M University System in 1990. The purpose of the CRS Center is to advance innovation and leadership in the design and construction industry.

  78. 123. 9.

  79. 125. Relationship Matrices <ul><li>Relationship matrix develop and show how various spaces relate. </li></ul><ul><li>Every identified space is located vertically along one side of the matrix. </li></ul><ul><li>Lines at a 45-degree angle to the end of each identified space extend to provide one cell connecting each space to every other space. </li></ul><ul><li>A simple distinguishable code can be used to show the nature of the relationship between the spaces. </li></ul>
  80. 130. Relationship Diagrams <ul><li>Small circles or “ bubbles ” each of which contains the name of one of the identified spaces. </li></ul><ul><li>The bubble representing the space under consideration is drawn first, then other spaces relating to it are indicated in additional bubbles placed near the first bubble. </li></ul><ul><li>Heavy , medium, and light-weight lines can be used as a code to indicate strong, moderate, and weak relationships. </li></ul>
  81. 133. Relationship Diagrams <ul><li>For simple buildings , it may be possible to prepare a diagram which, like the relationship matrix, shows the interrelationships of all interior and exterior spaces. </li></ul><ul><li>As the building becomes more complex , it is difficult to prepare such a diagram without implying some relationships that may not exist. It may be necessary to relate only the established major zones of the building. </li></ul>
