Abstract: This paper describes the linking of Idea Space/E3dAD, a
system that captures and interprets the architect’s ideas with DYNAMO, a
dynamic memory of design cases, to support concept development in
architectural design. So far, a major obstacle for the breakthrough of
digital case bases like DYNAMO has been the separateness of these tools
from the architect’s working environment. Having to leave this
environment to consult a case base inconveniently interrupts the design
process. The remedy proposed in this paper was inspired by the Shift+F7
shortcut in Ms Wordâ. Just like this shortcut allows authors to look up
synonyms in a thesaurus without having to leave the text, linking Idea
Space to DYNAMO enables architects to trigger case retrieval ‘en passant’, that is during the very act of designing.
