title Digital & Analogue – Seamlessly Integrating Freehand-Sketching in a Digital Design Environment
source Projecting Spaces [Proceedings of the 9th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN 978-3-942411-31-8 ], pp. 135-146
summary In last decade the computer has turned from a simple “drawing machine” into a broad “design medium”. Digital tools offer possibilities for simulation, analysis or research. Using these tools in addition to the creative process new synergies can arise in dialog with the computer. Nevertheless, this potential is currently not exhausted. Reasons for this dilemma originate to large parts from the complicatedness of the programs which prevent a creative usage with the arising possibilities the complex digital design brings along with. To guarantee a smooth dialog between the computer and the designer and between distributed working design teams, we are investigating in the conception of an ideal computer-based design environment (ICBDE). Therefore we developed a prototypical design platform, where we try to consider the peculiarities of the design process in an integrated “digital chain”. Core concept of this ideal-framework is the seamless coupling of digital design tools to permit a back-coupling work in a comprehensive design environment. In this context the paper outlines sketching as one part of this ICBDE. Freehand-sketching is still one of the most important design tools. It is used in all phases of the design process and helps to turn the invisible thoughts fast and intuitively into workable artifacts. In contrast to the precise virtual models, the vagueness of sketches helps the designer to remain flexible in his decision- making and to keep the orientation in complex design tasks.
