Author  Paul Merrell, Eric Schkufza, Zeyang Li, Vladlen Koltun ---Stanford University  Maneesh Agrawala ---University of California, Berkeley

outline  Introduction  Overview  Functional criteria --clearance,circulation,pairwise relationship,conversation  Visual criteria ---balance,alignment, emphasis  Generating suggestions

Introduction(1/2)

Introduction(2/2)  Contributions -- identify a set of design guidelines -- develop a system for creating furniture arrangement

Overview  Creat a room  Select furnitues  Generate suggestions

Overview  Use Markov chain carlo sampler to suggestion optimized layouts

Definition  Functional criteria ---How well the layout support human activities  Visual criteria --- concern the perception of the layout as a visual composition

Clearance    A = {(1, 0), (0, 1), (0, − 1)} B = {(0, 0), (1, 1), (1, − 1)} A + B = {(1, 0), (2, 1), (2, − 1), (0, 1) (1, 2), (1, 0), (0, − 1), (1, 0), (1, − 2)}

Clearance Many furniture items need open space around them

Circulation  Circulation --An effective furniture layout must support circulation through the room and access to all of the furniture.

Circulation

Pairwise relationships  Human physiology affects how objects should be positioned with respect to each other.

Pairwise relationships

Pairwise relationships

Conversation  the seats within a conversation area should be roughly four to eight feet apart

Conversation

Balance  The principle is to place the mean of the distribution of visualweight at the center of the composition. The visual weight of an element is its perceptual saliency.  A common assumption is that larger objects carry more visual weight.

Balance

Alignment  In furniture arrangement, alignment primarily concerns the orientation of the furniture items relative to each other and to the walls of the room.

Alignment

Emphasis  It is generally desirable to have a dominant focal point in the interior, so that the eye can rest without suffering competing demands for visual attention.

Emphasis

Generating suggestions  Density function and sampling i ⋲ ci; pd; pa; cd; ca; vb; fa;wa; sy; efg and wi are the mixture weights.
