Abstract

Innovation in the Building Industry is necessary. This research set out to develop amethod that would create the opportunity to introduce a greater variety and amount of design knowledge from the outset of the conceptual design phase and use it for concept creation by applying Concept-Knowledge theory. C-K theory defines design as the interplay between two interdependent spaces, knowledge space K and concept space C, which allows us to conceive of the possibility to transform the building design team’s knowledge into new concepts.The Integral Design method developed here, may in time lead to the generation of innovative building concepts that will allow us the opportunity to move beyond redesign and optimization

Keywords: Integral design, C-K theory, morphological overview, building design.

Research in design and the emergence of a research community in this area has been relatively new, its development influenced by the multiple facets of design (human, artefact, process, organisation, and the micro- and macro economy by which design is shaped) and the associated diversification of the community into those focusing on...
