Tools, stages and perspective-taking during the architectural design process: preliminary results from a university-building case-study in Australia


Kuliga, Saskia; Dalton, Ruth Conroy; Tomko, Martin; Hölscher, Christoph (2014). Tools, stages and perspective-taking during the architectural design process: preliminary results from a university-building case-study in Australia. In: Design cognition & behaviour: usability in the built environment, Bremen, Germany, 15 September 2014 - 15 September 2014, 18-22.

Abstract

This case-study investigated which tools and techniques building planners use during the architectural design process in order to anticipate future building-user experience. Preliminary qualitative analysis of seven semistructured interviews with key stakeholders involved in the planning of a university building revealed that architects and designers mainly rely on past experience and tacit knowledge, rather than using systematic pre-occupancyevaluation methods. Based on insights from interdisciplinary research, this article seeks to encourage further discussion of need-analysis for assistive tools in architectural design.
