Stathopoulou, D., 2011. From Dance Movement to Architectural Form. Thesis (Master of Philosophy (MPhil)). University of Bath.
Architecture and dance, two apparently diverse subjects, are explored, analysed and interrelated in this research, through parametric modelling. The thesis is divided into five basic chapters. Firstly, the prior research regarding architecture and dance is examined, which also justifies the innovation of the current research. Secondly, the visualisation techniques that have been used so far are explored in order to record, file, compose, animate, transform or combine dance movements. Afterwards, how dance movement can be expressed and transformed within the frame of parametric modelling is explained. The tools created are then applied in two case-studies, and transformed according to the functional and spatial restrictions of each project. Finally, the outcomes of this research are summarised indicating the achievements and the difficulties of the whole process, while recommendations for further research are suggested.
