||Conceptual modeling through a conceptual structure
||This paper reports on a computer aided design system which I have developed to handleproblems of ambiguity in the description of architectural objects during the schematicdesign phase. The knowledge base underlying this system is referred to as a "conceptualstructure'', Within the "conceptual structure", an ambiguous "child" object may inheritattributes from many alternative kinds of "parent" objects. The "conceptual structure'' canalso accommodate a design process through which a "child" object such as a "wall" canbecome less ambiguous over time. The end of this design process is the "disambiguated"specification of the final designed object. This system was first developed as part of myPh.D. Dissertation at Harvard University (Mark 1993).
