title Usage of Planning Support Systems - Combining three approaches
source Van Leeuwen, J.P. and H.J.P. Timmermans (eds.) 2006, Innovations in Design & Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning, Dordrecht: Springer, ISBN-10: 1-4020-5059-3, ISBN-13: 978-1-4020-5059-6, p. 263-274
summary Although a wide range of Planning Support Systems (PSS) exists, their actual utilization in planning practice, to support planners in doing their planning tasks, stays behind. This is problematic since many see PSS capable of aiding planners to handle the complexity of their planning tasks. Our current study explains under usage of PSS from three different angles: the instrument, the user and the transfer of the instrument towards the user. The main conclusion is that usage of PSS is hampered by lack of awareness of and experience with PSS in planning practice as well as by instrumental quality problems and hampered user acceptance and diffusion. The main recommendation to enhance usage of PSS is that it should be made transparent which PSS types should be used for what planning tasks, by which kinds of users, in which kinds of organizations and under which external conditions.

title Space Syntax, an Inspiring Design-Tool

summary The space syntax system which is presented in this paper has been developed to help the designer to evaluate and to define the form of complex spatial environments, especially the urban structures. The system has a double nature. On the one hand, it is a way to consider those environments. On the other hand, it includes a computerized model which calculates, on the basis of morphological properties of the spatial environment, several output- variables which represent measure, in which certain urban phenomena are spatially distributed. Instances of urban phenomena are: circulation, framing, functions, populationů These correlations oblige the designer to take into account those urban facets at every stage of the project. The disciplinary fragmentation is then made very difficult for him. Besides, the contradictions or incompatibilities from local-global interests become an integral part of the urbanity. Those correlations re-open also a track which seemed to be abandoned - the one of the functionality of the urban and architectural structures - and, therefore, force the designers to confront their social responsibilities. All this has been made possible thanks to a categorical revision of what is essentially the city. According to the theoretical framework of Space Syntax, environments are above all considered as a distributive system of spaces and less of buildings.

title Automatic Recognition of Graphic Documentation in Building Design
source CAAD: Education - Research and Practice [eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 87-982875-2-4] Aarhus (Denmark) 21-23 September 1989, pp. 7.6.1-7.6.6
summary Automatic image recognition by means of Artificial Intelligence techniques poses some unsolved problems but it can be viable in technical drawing because standards allow the problem to be managed in terms of knowledge. The paper deals with the feasibility of a knowledge-based design. A semantic network is employed to model knowledge and an expectation-driven recognition strategy is used.
