The generation of architectural layouts through knowledge-based techniques forms a notable focus in design research efforts. A significant aspect of this research centers upon the development of user interfaces which permit designers to take a participatory role in the development of layout solutions. This paper focuses on issues associated with the development of these user interfaces, and introduces one implementation under development in the Computer-Aided Architectural Design Expert project at Stanford University.
