summary The design paradigm has shifted from addressing geometric masses and social spaces to integrate a whole new set of variables and criteria evolving from the environmental aspect of the design. Architectural design is confronting a mounting challenge with the ever-growing complexity of design concepts and the increasing pressure to incorporate aspects of energy preservation and sustainability. Such challenge is clearly noted and sensed within the pedagogical realm. There are many calls to bridge the gap through assisting design students to assimilate environmental analysis data in their design and decision making process. This paper presents a framework for a proposed method and relating tools aiming to utilize games technology with multi-agent systems and data mining techniques to assist design students and untrained professionals in comprehending various aspects of environmental design, with guidelines to incorporate these aspects in their design iteration process.
