Activity objects in CAD-programs for building design : A prototype program implementation

Ekholm, Anders LU (2001) p.61-74
Abstract
In the early stages of the building design process, during the programming and
the proposal stages, both user activities and the building are in focus for the
designer. In spite of this, today’s CAD programs give no support for
management of information about user activities in the building. This paper
discusses the requirements on modelling user activities in the context of
building design and presents a prototype software. The prototype is developed
as an add-on to the architectural design software ArchiCAD.
