Information Systems for Architectural Design

Ekholm, Anders LU (2001) In Nordic Journal of Architectural Research 2001(3). p.79-87
Abstract
Architectural design is a process of creative problem solving, moreover architects manage not only information about the building but also about the user organisation. Therefore, information systems for architectural design must support the development of new ideas and concepts, and must be able to handle both building and user data. The paper presents two recently developed prototype applications, built on a conceptual model for the architectural design process, BAS·CAAD with the objective to support creative design, and ACTIVITY with the objective to support user activity modelling as an integrated part of building design.
