Abstract: The application of the case-based design (CBD) method to preliminary building design provides an opportunity to overcome problems associated with traditional computer-based design methods. CBD can potentially reduce complexity, improve communication between the engineer and the architect and circumvent difficulties with non-decompositionality in building design. At the same time, it offers an attractive opportunity to maintain the quality of a selected case and requires minimal search for adaptation. While CBD is best suited to solve routine design tasks, some of the techniques employed in case adaptation, such as automatic detection of conflicts and dimensionality reduction, also make it useful for innovative design.
