title STRUCTURAL SKETCHER: A TOOL FOR SUPPORTING ARCHITECTS IN EARLY STAGES
source PhD thesis, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, The Netherlands
summary Traditionally, architects use pen and paper for the early stages. Architects have great expertise in drawing, their use is simple and has low overhead, and a high precision is not required, and even counterproductive. The last decades many systems to support architects have been developed. These are primarily suited for the production of final technical drawings. Architects do not use them in the early phases, because they do not offer the freedom, speed, and ambiguity needed there. Nevertheless, the use of a computer could offer benefits, such as ease of modification and editing as well as higher level support. The aim of the project described in this thesis was to develop a computer-sketching tool to support architects in the early design stages.
