Abstract

This research explores the practical findings of CAAD visualization techniques for the analysis and understanding of early phases of the conceptual design. Our aim is to allow subjects to focus on their design tasks rather than worry about the creation of effective concept presentation. The possibility of a complete computer mediated conceptualization process should be acknowledged as a visual thinking tool. This research will have implications for both how the designer’s visual thinking process can be interfaced with CAAD and, perhaps more importantly, may provide new assumptions for the designer’s visual cognitive research to explore in order to provide the foundation for more useful tools for designers.
