  • Abstract:

    This thesis aims to contribute to the identification of failures in the current design process regarding both user-clients (UC) interaction with design specialists at the briefing process and the limited use of visualization tools (VT) to address user clients needs and to present design specialists with an alternative visual approach for presenting building design proposals. To achieve these aims, the main objectives are to obtain an insight into the theory of briefing, highlighting the importance and current roles of paying clients (PC) and user-clients and to describe visualization technologies and their relative advantages and disadvantages, finally developing and evaluating an experimental model to allow measurement of spatial and cognitive participant abilities, through the comparison of two different visual stimuli: 2D and 3D
