Sustainable Digitization

The goal of sustainable design is to reduce the negative environmental impacts of buildings while boosting the health and comfort of building occupants. While architects design buildings to be comfortable, too often this is dependent on energy-intensive systems such as heating, air-conditioning, ventilation, and lighting.

In this article, we discuss recent research looking at using a data-driven approach that uses Machine Learning to predict daylighting for building layouts. …

Augmented Intelligence

Digital Blue Foam

Digital Blue Foam

I was recently selected for a research internship at one of the most promising and exciting AEC startups — Digital Blue Foam. I was given a chance to use their Augmented Intelligence enhanced software. Here’s an article that describes its features and advantages.

So this software is a web-based interactive generative design tool that gathers urban and climate data from various available web sources. Once you log into the Digital Blue Foam website you get options to load the previous session (not for you if it’s your first time), search bar for searching and locating the site you are looking…

Spatial Data Science

Designing any product requires a lot of analysis and research. Restaurants are no different.

Designing any product requires a lot of analysis and research. It is also true for designing any building. Before we begin to design any building, we collect information about the location where we are designing, we check the budget, we do research about the background of the target audience and their likes and dislikes.

In designing any space you need to follow some preliminary steps, like budget analysis, client requirements, form & concept development, site analysis, and zoning.

Site Analysis is one of the major steps in the pre-designing processes. It involves analysis and evaluating topography, watercourses, trees, manmade features…

As urbanisation have reached unprecedented levels, road congestion has become a modern day issue. Heavy traffic is associated with air pollution, safety risks, economic competitiveness, sustainable growth and social cohesion.

In this situation Bike sharing systems are becoming a major solution to avoid the above mentioned issues. The benefits of bike sharing schemes include transport flexibility, reductions to vehicle pollutants, health benefits, reduced congestion and fuel consumption, and financial savings for individuals.

This is a report on Data Science for beginners and enthusiasts starting Kaggle competitions. The following is detailed description of Data Science competition which includes Data Manipulation, Data…

Site Analysis Tool for Architects made using R Language

“I see my buildings as pieces of cities, and in my designs I try to make them into responsible and contributing citizens.” — César Pelli

Site Analysis is a part of pre-designing process and is defined as a detailed study of geographical, climatic, historical and legal of piece of land where we are planning to design the space. It involves getting information about topographies, trees around, streets, connectivity to major locations, weather, climate and pollution, and then analysing this given data or information.

Site Analysis involves 3 important steps :

  • Research phase
  • Analysis phase
  • Synthesis phase

Whenever we are done with selecting the site we must always…

A Learning Journey

I started developing interest in Data Science back in march 2020 and the journey of learning has began since then, but many people whom I meet and tell, that I am learning Data Science and am quite enthusiastic about it, they start to question me, “Then why have you chosen architecture as your major and why not computer science or any other major related to computers or software or programming ? Did your parents force you take architecture ?” Well the answer to these all questions is NO. Obviously there is scope in Data Science but I had no intentions…

“A great presentation gives smart ideas an advantage”

I was interning with an AI/ML startup — Rises Analytics Solutions Pvt Ltd, in my hometown when the CEO of the company got invited by a college for a presentation of the topic, AI vs COVID-19, for their students. Since I had just joined the firm for internship I was assigned to make that presentation, which was a great experience in itself and got me to learn a lot.

So first of all let us know what exactly is a presentation.

A presentation is, typically a demonstration, introduction, lecture meant to inform…

From the last few years, statistics have been a key element in football. The data available has been widely used for the pre/post match analysis, player’s pre match fitness, player ratings, scouting, to decide the form of a team, predicting the results of matches and even for betting. The most widely used statistical approach to prediction is ranking the teams. The football world these days Is surely becoming data driven . Being a Data Science enthusiast I was quite excited when I got to know there were lots of football datasets available, and soon decided to dive deeper into exploration…
