Abstract: Learning from experience is the essence of Case-Based Reasoning (CBR). Because
architects are said learn design by experience, CBR seemed to hold great promises for
their field, which inspired in the 1990s the development of various Case-Based Design
(CBD) tools. Learning from the experience of developing and using these tools is the
objective of this paper. On the one hand, the original expectations seem far from being
accomplished today. Reasons for this limited success can be found at three different
levels: the cognitive model underlying CBR, the implementation of this model into
concrete CBD tools, and the context in which these tools are to be used. On the other
hand, CBR research seems to have caused some interesting side effects, such as an
increased interest in creativity and copyright, and a re-discovery of the key role cases
play in architectural design.
