title Expert Systems Applications in Computer-aided Design
source Guildford: Butterworth, 1986. pp. 218-225. Reprinted in Computer Aided Design 18(10): pp. 546-551
summary Rule-based expert system shells are demonstrated to be useful in elementary design decision making. Two applications are presented which utilize the BUILD shell. The first is concerned with the selection and design of earth-retaining structures and makes use of passive graphics in descriptions. The second is concerned with the analysis and synthesis of kitchens and uses graphics to allow the user to interact with the system. Such systems are useful when the range of options is small

title Structured Tools and Conditional logic : An Empirical Investigation
source Communications of the ACM. January, 1986. vol 29: pp. 48-57 : ill. includes bibliography
summary Prior research has identified two psychological processes that appear to be used by programmers when they perform design and coding tasks: Taxonomizing-identifying the conditions that evoke particular action, and sequencing- converting the taxa into linear sequence of program code. The article describes an experiment that seeks to provide insight into the relative strength and limitations of three structured tools -- structured english, decision tables and decision trees how they facilitate these two process

title Digital Space, Social Technology and Virtual Force as Determinants of Design in the 21st Century
source Architectural Computing from Turing to 2000 [eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9523687-5-7] Liverpool (UK) 15-17 September 1999, pp. 122-126
summary It is appropriate to begin with salient quotes relating to the Interface Paradigm: 'The grand abstraction of man as the measure of all things, as an originary condition, a whole presence, can no longer be sustained' P. Eisenmann, 1986 'Although notions of adaptation are perhaps most familiar from biology, the most important ideas about adaptation in the history of AI are actually sociological' P.E.Agre, 1998 'When several bureaucracies coexist (governmental, academic, ecclesiastic) in the absence of super hierarchy to co-ordinate the interactions, the whole set of institutions will tend to form a meshwork of hierarchies, articulated mostly through local and temporary links' M. De Landa 1998

title Algorithms and Data Structures
source 288 p. : ill. Englewood, New Jersey: Prentice-Hall Inc., 1986. includes bibliography and index
summary The book reflects the development of the use of computers and sophisticated algorithms to prepare and automatically typeset documents. It develops programs in step-wise fashion and express them in a well structured, detailed presentation. The book stresses the importance of performance analysis and demonstrates how algorithm selection and refinement are used most effectively in program design. Presents tested programs

title The Computability of Design
source ACADIA Workshop 86 Proceedings - Houston (Texas - USA) 24-26 October 1986, pp. 103-111
summary A number of architectural design studios (second, third and fifth year) at the School of Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology have undertaken traditional design problems through the use of IBM-AT microcomputer based CAD/Graphics systems. Utilizing three-dimensional modeling software, color graphics "paint" software, and animation software, the studios integrated the use of computers into the very heart of the core program as the primary means of design, simulation, and evaluation. At the same time, other non-computer based studios engaged in similar (and often identical) design problems. Therefore, the opportunity became available to compare and evaluate both the impact the computer made to the traditional architectural studio and also to the building design itself.

title Report of a CAAD-Course: Curriculum, Results and Revision
source Teaching and Research Experience with CAAD [4th eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Rome (Italy) 11-13 September 1986, pp. 146-153
summary In 1985 the college of Technology Heerlen started in cooperation with the Academy of Architecture Maastricht a course CAAD on behalf of graduates of both institutes. In this contribution attention is paid to the preparation and frame. The course in 1985 was a great success. After a profound revision the course has started again this year. A report of the experiences by the course developer/co-ordinator.
