Computational Representations of Words and Associations in Architectural Design -
Development of a System Supporting Creative Design
Eindhoven University of Technology
The aim of this research is to determine what the role of words and associations is in the field of Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD), aiming at support for the architect in the early phase of the design process. Aspects that are researched in greater detail are the reduction of fixation and enhancement of creativity by using written words and semantic associations to make graph representations. The research method contains two case studies along with a literature study leading to assertions and hypotheses that are tested with a working prototype in an experiment.
