title Interpretation of Implicit Design Knowledge in Architectural Drawings Into Explicit Knowledge
source CAADRIA 2005 [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 89-7141-648-3] New Delhi (India) 28-30 April 2005, vol. 1, pp. 23-32
summary This paper concerns a methodology in applying architectural design knowledge to the interpretation of design concepts from architectural drawings. We formalize the design knowledge such that knowledge plays a key role in the design interpretations that map between drawings and their design concepts. We consider this mapping, in general, as those linking between design decision space and design performance space, where design variables in both spaces are examined and categorized from the drawings and concepts. Examinations on drawings are performed based on qualitative shape analysis schemes and we apply feature-based shape analysis techniques to encapsulate those design characteristics in decision space. Interpretations of design concepts through shape characteristics are based on mostly two types of symmetries, namely cyclic and dihedral groups. We use CommonLISP in analyzing shapes in design decision space and CLIPS expert system shell in illustrating simple reasoning based on those design knowledge. We select target drawings from some of Frank Lloyd Wright’s block housing plans. In this experiment we try to illustrate a valid methodology that explicitly handles some of the implicit design knowledge hidden in architectural drawings.
