title The Role of Digital Technologies in Promoting Contemporary and Collaborative Design Processes
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 469-478
summary Digital technologies and contemporary CAAD systems are increasingly being adopted in architectural practice. Thus, their impacts on buildings design process need to be addressed and explored, as there are signs of a potential revolution in AEC industry. This paper presents a methodology and preliminary results of a work-in-progress for a Master of Science dissertation. The main purpose of the study is to find similarities in practice in order to determine main characteristics and fundamentals of contemporary design process. It consists of a design praxiology approach according to Cross' taxonomy of design research. Three project cases developed by digital processes and explored by secondary data from literature reviews, complemented by documentary research, are presented as preliminary results, as well as their main similarities. Through the analysis of the cases, it was verified that the presence of BIM, parametric modeling and digital fabrication overlaps and promotes holistic and largely collaborative design processes. The role of collaboration is highlighted, which was presented as a key factor for the success of the projects. Future results from the described methodology should allow a more detailed and in-depth characterization of the contemporary design process.
