||View Integration in building design
||van Nederveen S
||The design process of a building is a process of co-operation of manydifferent participants. Each participant has his own perception of thebuilding and uses his own building model, Such participant specific buildingmodels are called (actor) view models. The combination of multiple viewmodels and multiple companies involved, makes it very difficult to managecommunication in the design process.This paper presents an approach for the management of different viewmodels, Following this approach, discipline specific information is defined inview models. View models can communicate to each other via a model kernel,which is formed by the overlapping of the view models. The view modelstructure is illustrated with a case study which develops two view models ofa wall. The integration of these two models illustrates how the kernel modelcan be constructed. Models for other disciplines can be added to the viewmodel structure. Two models for conceptual design views are presented anddiscussed briefly. The presented view model structure can function as a basisfor integration of computer applications. However, regarding CAD systems,results are expected to be more modest.
