Classification and Utilization of Design Supportive Tools in Architectural Design Process

Nima Norouzi, Maryam Shabak, Mohamed Rashid Bin Embi and Tareef Hayat Khan

Abstract:
The architectural design process has used a variety of design supportive tools with the potential of emerged new technologies available to architects today. Unfortunately, there is no comprehensive classification of design supportive tools in practice. Today’s architects are practicing various advanced technologies in design activity, but they have the insufficient ability and method for utilizing artifacts into the design process. The issue mentioned above is problematic because new tools and applications have been developed without knowledge of clients. To achieve a reliable tool assessment, subjective factors such as client feedback must be considered as criteria of selection tools. Foremost, it requires comprehensive investigation of the current situation of architectural design practice. This study aimed to introduce a descriptive and holistic framework of the factors affecting the adoption and utilization of design supportive tools in architectural design practice. The significance of this study is that architect and client need to employ the design supportive tools based on the character and nature of each stage of the design process to achieve the design objectives. Thus, appropriate tools will help them to present the solution in a way which is understandable and tangible to both parties. Tools have a prominent role in this approach and because of vast development in design and communication tools in the digital era, by adapting the technological and behavioral changes into a design process an innovative approach will be generated.
