title Typological Knowledge in Computer-Aided Housing Design -- Chapter 6
source Helsinki, Finland: the Finish Academy of Technology, 1989. No. 92: pp. 49-60 : ill. includes bibliography
summary This paper considers logical aspects in the knowledge and rule based approach to housing planning and design. The generation problem in housing design is formulated and some experimental work in the field is discussed. Logical methods in knowledge-based generation are introduced as a frame for various production situation. Formation of typical compositions is discussed as a basis for more advanced design. Generation of typological classes and mastering of individual solutions by means of sets of predicates are used to form knowledge-bases for elementary housing solutions. The possibilities of sentenial calculi are characterized in order to allow reconstruction of tradition-guided expert know how. Finally some desirable characteristics of computer aided housing design systems are illustrated
