summary When considering the design process as a search through a design space, creative design occurs when the design space is expanded by adding knowledge from outside the space. A design space includes a state space, points which represent partial design descriptions, and operators that enable the process to move from one state to another. The design operators embody generalized design knowledge about classes of design solutions, i.e. prototypes. The authors' approach to knowledge- based creative design provides mechanisms for prototype adaptation and generation through analogy and mutation. This model is illustrated by creative solutions to building design problems. The implementation is discussed
