Tangible interfaces to explain Gaudi's use of ruled-surface geometries - Interactive systems design for haptic, nonverbal learning
Fischer, Thomas, Herr, Candy M., Burry, Mark, & Frazer, John H. (2003) Tangible interfaces to explain Gaudi's use of ruled-surface geometries - Interactive systems design for haptic, nonverbal learning. Automation in Construction, 12(5), pp. 467-471.
This paper summarises the development of a machine-readable model series for explaining Gaudi's use of ruled-surface geometry in the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain. The first part discusses the modeling methods underlying the columns of the cathedral and the techniques required to translate them into built structures. The second part discusses the design and development of a tangible machine-readable model to explain column-modeling methods interactively in educational contexts such as art exhibitions. It is designed to explain the principles underlying the column design by means of physical interaction without using mathematical terms or language.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
