||In the submitted paper, a KBS for supporting the acoustical design ofbuildings is described. The main objective of this system is to allow theintegration of the acoustical aspects in the building design activities, with aspecial emphasis on the necessity to consider the acoustical aspects during theearly design stages, (i. e. Massing and Sketching), In fact, building design canbe considered as a regulative, integrative process which can be divided intoseveral stages. However, four design stages are commonly identified. MassingDesign Stage, Sketching Design Stage, Preliminary Design Stage and DetailedDesign Stage. In order to carry out the system, a set of tools should beproposed. These tools must allow the user (designer) to perform the differenttasks related to acoustical design of a building in relation to i- the designstage and -ii the other areas which could be considered from an acousticalpoint of view as design constraints. In addition, they must enable use of thedifferent strategies used in the design activities i. e. refinement prototypes andgeneration prototypes. Augmented Transition Networks are proposed torepresent the acousstical design process, with this representation being basedon the use of arcs and nodes. On finally the architecture of system isproposed.
