Abstract: DYNAMO (Dynamic Architectural Memory Online) is an interactive platform to share ideas, knowledge and insights in the form of
concrete building projects among designers in different contexts and at
different levels of expertise. Interaction with various user groups revealed two
major thresholds: submitting project material to the platform takes time, effort,
and specific skills; in addition, designers tend to sense a psychological
threshold to share their ideas and insights with others. In response to this
‘free-ridership’, the paper proposes to conceive DYNAMO as an associative
network of projects, and develops ideas about how the links in this network can
be determined and updated by exploiting insights implicitly available in project
documentation and user (inter)actions. This should allow DYNAMO to learn
from the insights of all designers using the platform, active contributors and
‘free-riders’ alike, without any awareness on their side and to apply these
insights to continuously enhance its performance.
