Axiomatic Design Approach for the Conceptual Design of Sustainable Buildings
MetadataShow full item record
Architectural design has become increasingly complex due to the global environmental, energy issues, and socio-economic changes. Key parameters well considered in the early phase of the design process would provide good performance, competitive costs, and close-to-envisioned appearance of the built environment. Therefore, in order to reduce or minimize the complexity of the entire design process, a systematic approach is required, especially in the early phase of architectural design projects. While many systematic design approaches have been developed in engineering design, little effort has been made in architecture. Axiomatic Design (AD) is distinguished from other systematic design methods by having design axioms that guide good design decisions, especially in the early design phase. The AD approach has basic design principles which can be applied to problem analysis and decision-making. In this paper, a review and classification of AD applications in the architectural design processes is conducted. This study provides an initial framework which will be further developed to create a systemic framework to support architectural design in an efficient and effective way.
