||Computer assistants to building design are more and more oriented to construct repertories of cases to
be recalled as possible suggestions to a real design situation. For this purpose it is necessary that the
cases be described by the parameters most apt to describe the design situations. In this way it will be
possible to extract out of the repertory the existing case most akin to the design problem the designer is
dealing with. This kind of help is the most fit to the usual behaviour of a designer which, in order to find the
best solution to a design problem, resort to his culture, his knowledge of real cases, which he tries to
adapt to the peculiar need of his present case. This paper presents an attempt to construct such a tool
also if restricted to only one building component: the exterior brickwork. It is structured as an Hypertext,
which allows a net of relationships much richer than the one of a conventional handbook.
