title Using a Relational Database and CAD program in tandem: exemplified by Health Centre Design
source [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Eindhoven (The Netherlands) 11-13 November 1993
summary It is not always obvious to Architecture students how database and spreadsheet programs can be used as a design aid. At Liverpool we discuss and illustrate the use of such programs as part of a compulsory first year course, but it is clear that students on the course find it much easier to appreciate the usefulness and relevance of the drawing and modelling programs which they look at than other elements of the course, such as database handling. What we plan to do for the academic year 1993/4 is to illustrate how a (relational) database can have the potential to aid design and to analyse the design process for real projects. The particular example which we will be describing is that of the design of Health Centres in the UK.
