summary This paper reviews empirical studies in product modeling and issues of CAAD, and then proposes a new way of thinking in object modeling for abstract design concepts – by using stairs as the subject of study because of its systematic nature and wide variety of forms. This object model works in the higher level over existing product models and deals with abstract concept only. It provides a mean for capturing design concepts and knowledge. Most stair generator in CAAD are only capable of making regular stairs, let alone those fascinating free-form stairs. The purpose of this research is to find a higher conceptual structure of stairs by the object modeling method, so virtually all types of stairs can be described and modeled. Therefore conceptual design in CAAD would be possible and useful for designers. A prototype on AutoCAD will be implemented to demonstrate how the conceptual structure works.
