Design Decision Support Systems 7M505 Design Project Part: Urban Design Aloys Borgers Vertigo 08+H07; tel 4625
Design Decision Support Systems Design project Learning goals: –Acquiring insight in the nature of design, design problems, and design processes. –Hands-on experience with making a design. –Structural reflection on the aspects of a design process. –First overview of possibilities for Urban Planning Support (addressed later in the project).

Design Decision Support Systems Design project Design a land use plan for a large urban area, e.g. –Meerhoven (Eindhoven) –Brandevoort (Helmond) –….
Design Decision Support Systems Relevant aspects (1) Residential areas: high, medium, low density Industrial and commercial areas Local transportation network: grid, radial, loop, tree, ring, axial, …
Design Decision Support Systems Relevant aspects (2) Public transportation system greenspaces retail facilities educational facilities other facilities
Design Decision Support Systems Design process (1) Determine requirements –quantities –qualities Inventory of current situation Order aspects in terms of importance
Design Decision Support Systems Design process (2) Start with (pair of) most important aspects –determine alternative solutions –assess likely effects of each solution –choose best solution Select next most important aspect(s) –repeat in context of previous decisions –if necessary: redo previous step(s)
Design Decision Support Systems Design process (3) Select next aspect(s) and so on … Present final design
Design Decision Support Systems Evaluation Evaluation is the act of considering the state of the design with regard to the requirements (of the client, yourself, and others). Keep track of your criteria through the design process Keep track of your decisions
Design Decision Support Systems Urban Planning Support System During the design process, report all problems and questions an UPSS should be able to handle.
