The implications of architectural design decisions are in many cases hard to predict and envisage. As architectural tasks grow more complex and the design of architecture shifts away from the design of end products towards the steering of dynamic processes, new ways of coping with complexity in the design and planning process are needed. Taking this as its starting point, as well as the need for architects to use familiar, established design tools, the research project described here builds on prior work in the field to find ways of supporting the design decision-making process with objective information so that designers are better able to manage these complexities. The focus of the project lies on directly coupling interactive simulations and analyses with established design tools. This project discusses a central problem in this context: how to present complex calculation results directly within a three-dimensional physical model. The approach described, as evidenced by the realized prototype, shows clearly that directly coupling real and digital information using interactive augmented visualization presents immense possibilities for managing the complexity of planning processes.

In an interdisciplinary project we examined new approaches for using computers and information technology in the early creative phases of the design process. The aim is to develop digital tools that strengthen rather than hinder the design process so that a continuous workflow results according to the motto “the simper the tool is to use, the less it gets in the way of the actual process of designing”. As a result, established design tools are not entirely replaced by digital methods but instead combined with a view to making the most of both worlds: by combining the advantages of each realm, we expand the possibilities of designing in real and virtual environments.
