title Prototype of an Interactive Case Library for Architectural Design

summary Architects acquire an important part of their design knowledge from existing designs. Specific design projects from the past form an indispensable source of information and inspiration. Hence the idea todevelop a digital library of design cases that can be easily accessed during design. The paper describes a recently developed prototype of such a case library, intended to assist architecture students in the studio,yet with the potential of expansion into the office setting. When students enrol into a design project, they usually receive a reader with some relevant examples. At first sight, the digital case library only seems torepresent these examples into another medium, yet there are some important differences between both. Unlike the reader, the library has at its core an indexing-system which allows the easy retrieval of relevantinformation. By labelling projects with several features and making links between similar designs, the tool supports both directed search and browsing. A second difference is that the library is interactive. Studentsare not only able to consult interesting examples, but also to add other projects they consider relevant, to make links between them, to create extra indices etc. Finally, the tool allows to combine several media andto create links to external information sources.
