title A semantic indexation method to assist with the architectural design process by images

summary A lot of research shown that designing an architectural solution requires introducing external references other than those existing in the design problem. In our case we choose photographic images to illustrate these references because an image illustrates the graphic part of an architectural concept. For this the information transmitted by photographic image is often easier to interpret by the designer. To assist the design process, we are working on the construction of a reference image database where the designer will find various solutions to his design problem. We have therefore proposed a method for indexing this image database. The following paper tackles the particular question of semantic meaning applied to architectural works. More precisely, we present the results obtained through an experiment following the Chi-square statistic rule, whose objective was to validate the weight associated with the architectural concepts illustrated according to their visual features in images.
