Project description

This research project tries to investigate how existing work methods in architectural design and the seemingly shortcoming digital interaction with related AEC domains can be improved with existing ICT technologies. Based on the results of this research, a new, integrated framework will be elaborated towards a high-semantic design environment that combines these technologies and leads to further applications on design workflow integration.
