title Can Entropy Indicate the Richness of Idea Generation in Team Designing?
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. 451-457
summary This paper presents the development of a quantitative method to study team designing processes. It revisits linkograhy – a graphical representation of the design moves – and depicts ways of interpreting the linkography using entropy from Shannon’s information theory, to compare design processes. A case study with two different scenarios is presented followed by the results and conclusions.
