OpenD: supporting parallel development of digital designs

  title={OpenD: supporting parallel development of digital designs},
  author={Mark Meagher and Katerine Bielaczyc and Jeffrey Huang},
  booktitle={DUX '05},
Learning from one's peers has traditionally played a significant role in the education of design professionals. Grounded in the ideals of the atelier tradition, design education is predicated on the open exchange of ideas and constant critique of work in progress. Many of the most successful buildings for design education incorporate an open plan to encourage this type of interaction.In recent decades the design schools have been transformed and enriched through the introduction of powerful new… Expand
Code and its image: the functions of text and visualisation in a code-based design studio
A case study is presented describing four design studios in a higher education setting that used code as a tool for generating architectural geometry that encouraged the students to reflect critically on their role as authors and to creatively address the multiple opportunities for shared authorship available with code-based production.

Design's processional character
It is suggested that members of the department value the Digital Scrapbook because it is seen to reflect the processional character of design, and the system is seen as promising because it reveals the often messy, unintended and meandering routes design can follow. Expand
Re-thinking Traceability: A Prototype to Record and Revisit the Evolution of Design Artefacts
This paper uses a functional prototype to connect artefacts, design rationale, and decisions in a shared workspace to show that having a lean repository of artefacts annotated with design rationale can facilitate tracking progress in different phases of the process. Expand
Versioning for parametric design exploration process
It is proposed that integrating a versioning system into parametric design exploration workflow provides following benefits: (1) version control, (2) cross-iteration versions comparison, (3) feedback platform, and (4) design project analytics. Expand
How bodies matter: five themes for interaction design
This paper draws on theories of embodiment - from psychology, sociology, and philosophy - synthesizing five themes particularly salient for interaction design: thinking through doing, performance, visibility, risk, and thick practice. Expand
Liquid Ontologies , Metaperspectives , and Dynamic Viewing of Shared Knowledge
We believe there is great learning potential in education involving shared, studentgenerated knowledge bases. However, it is not yet clear what architectures are most appropriate for such sharedExpand


Of Gurus and Godfathers: learning design in the networked age
The conversation reveals how frameworks oriented towards improving educational practice—in this instance, a set of concepts known as Teaching for Understanding—hold the potential of offering a common language to probe the impact of innovation and point the way towards redesign. Expand
Transparency in Information Architecture: Enabling Large Scale Creative Collaboration in Architectural Education over the Internet
Results of a quantitative process analysis of two types of courses in Computer Aided Architectural Design that were taught using database-driven online environments indicate that for these projects the web-environments were successful in enhancing peer-to-peer learning and that they promoted a more objective assessment of the submitted works.

Phase(x) — memetic engineering for architecture
The main topics addressed in this paper will be the structuring in phases of the course, the experiences the students had with collective authorship, and the observations they made about the memes 2 that developed and spread in the students' works. Expand
