Abstract
This paper presents a new approach for comparing different structural design alternatives based on data visualisation in the conceptual design phase. The aim of the proposed methodology is to focus on the overall structural behaviour and to include non-numeric architectural parameters. By having the information of all different design proposals at hand, the designer is able to make informed design decisions. Previous research will be discussed in order to introduce this new approach. It turns out that the use of data visualisation and dashboards enriches the design process and that the informed decision-making process is facilitated. What is presented in this paper is part of ongoing research and is focussing on the concept of the new approach and its research context. To have a clear understanding of this research context, an overview of terminology, difficulties of the current design process, and research topics with similar goals are discussed.
