Campus Information Model: A Participatory Design Tool to Support Qualitative Decision Making

Zamora, Paula Gómez; Grimes, Jennifer; Swarts, Matthew;


This paper presents our Campus Information Model from a participatory perspective. The primary goal of our Campus Information Model (CIM) is to gather several disciplinary goals into a single model as the platform for collaboration. This intermediate-scale model integrates information and expert knowledge about a university campus design, including landscape planning and building design, allowing users to obtain quantitative feedback in real time to support design facilitating their specific goals. This paper describes first, the concept of collaboration; second, the collaborative system CIM; and third, the strategies to bring quantitative and qualitative goals to the same design environment.
