Challenges of implementing a system-oriented model in the architectural design process [2.77 mb]
Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

The aim of this master thesis consists in recognizing the challenges of putting the architectural design process into a system-oriented model. While project management has become a useful in order to assure the successful progression of a project, it is very difficult to apply the same strategies than for a production project, for example, in a design domain; in architecture. While the success of a project in a scientific domain can easily be measured, it is not evident to assess the quality of a design. An analogy is established between the architectural design process and a system-oriented model, which transforms given inputs into outputs. In the first part of this master thesis the architectural design process - or system-architecture - is analysed and two different concepts are presented: the linear architectural design process and the integrated design process. The two processes are considering the architectural design as starting with the first sketch and ending with the built construction. Not only the processes will be presented but also the available tools, like BIM, which facilitate the implementation of a system-architecture. In the second part, the drawbacks, challenges and advantages of the previous described concepts of organising the architectural design process and using the tools (software and platforms) are analysed. The conclusion does not give the optimum solution how a strategic concept can be established in order to improve the organisation of an architectural process. The conclusion rather shows the origins of the difficulties and pinpoints an important issue: Architecture is always developed by humans for humans. Key Words: system-oriented model, system-architecture, linear architectural design process, integrated design, design management
