The paper begins by outlining some methodological problems, concluding that to understand design expertise we will need to recognise that such practice includes the roles of teams, communication and shared experiences and understandings. It explores the significance of experience in expertise focussing on the way precedent stored in the form of episodic(More)
The paper argues that creative design requires deep rather than shallow analysis and that current CAD techniques are not necessarily promoting this. ART AND DESIGN This paper will address the question as to whether or not the application of computers and specifically CAD has enhanced the opportunities for creativity in three-dimensional design. It will(More)
SUMMARY: There is a powerful cocktail of circumstances governing the way decisions are made during the architectural design process of a building project. There is considerable potential for misunderstandings, inappropriate changes, change which give rise to unforeseen difficulties, decisions which are not notified to all interested parties, and many other(More)
Simulation has many advantages in modeling complex systems to facilitate decision making. In this research, an integrated computer system will be developed which incorporates an agent-based discrete event simulator, a geographic information system, a rule base, and interactive databases in addition to interfaces and other supporting components. The modules(More)

In recent years the enterprise of building`virtual cities' has been actively pursued by research and development groups around the world. In the meantime wider applications and uses of virtual cities have been continuously encouraged and facilitated by the rapid expansion of the Internet and the World Wide Web. As an almost universally recognised term, a(More)
