summary Adding two apples to three oranges is not possible in a purely computational way. It takes creativity to see that you have got five pieces of fruit. Computation implies exact solutions while creativity is needed when there is an arbitrary gap or bias in a given situation. This paper is about the explicit introduction of gaps and biases in a visually simulated world. The computer is treated as a medium in which reference information from a virtual city model is confronted with sketch objects. The juxtaposition of referential information and sketch information delivers images that can evoke new ideas. The serendipity (gift to pick up ideas) of the designer transforms the given capricious cyber-real world into useful ideas and inventions. This process is supposed to trigger creativity for urban and architectural design.
