The architectural design process is characterised by continuously comparing different design alternatives throughout the whole design process. Collaborators from different fields of expertise need to work closely together and they are expected to give quick but sufficient feedback on the available design alternatives in order to proceed in the coll...
Conference Paper
During the first steps of the design process, architects, engineers and structural designers will come up with concepts, architectural ideas, structural considerations etc. This part of the design process is called the conceptual design process. An exploration of the design space will take place and different design alternatives are compared to eac...
Conference Paper

This paper presents a new approach for comparing different structural design alternatives based on data visualisation in the conceptual design phase. The aim of the proposed methodology is to focus on the overall structural behaviour and to include non-numeric architectural parameters. By having the information of all different design proposals at...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a novel approach for comparing different structural geometries based on data visualisation and illustrates this with bowstring bridges as case study. The aim of the approach is to have a quick and overall insight in different design proposals at the beginning of the design process. The approach will use a dashboard that is a com...
