  1. Digital Architecture Design Visions Susan Locsin

  2. Susan Locsin - background • 15 yrs as software developer • Commercial software development • Custom business applications • Business process re-engineering • Seen changes from DOS / UNIX to Windows to the Web

  3. Architecture Definition Programming Schematic Design Design Development Contract Documents Construction Changes Software Specifications Prototyping Development (Coding) Testing Documentation Training Implementation Design Process Steps Common Processes: information gathering, design document management, graphics, time management, collaboration, project scheduling, revision tracking

  4. Vision • Make design tools easy to use • Build on strengths of existing tools • Use right tool at the right time • Integrate tools into office workflow • Centralize data management

  5. Ease of Use • Common user interface • UI customized by user skill level / preferences • Generated design variations • Prototypes • Initial concept generator • Comprehensive reference library

  6. Reuse existing tools • Many special purpose tools already exist • Combine and consolidate existing tools and research projects • Integrate tools to work from common data model with an add-in like interface

  7. Right tool at the right time • Sketch VR for initial concept generation • Visio for furniture plan • Autocad for working drawings • Form Z for massing models • Vectorworks for object based design • 3D Max for presentation drawings

  8. Integrated Workflow • Don’t switch between applications • Workflow managed by customizable triggers • Automatically keeps many steps / processes / projects going at once • Changes are tracked & managed through all affected steps • Keep track of progress / status no matter what tool is used for the task

  9. Centralized Data Management • Store project data from all applications in one place • Eliminate duplicate data • Graphic programs utilize common data format • Requirements Management • Site Specifications

  10. Recap • Make design tools easy to use • Build on strengths of existing tools • Use right tool at the right time • Integrate tools into office workflow • Centralize data management
