dc.description.abstractThe use of digital fabrication tools in the architecture industry serve a particular group of individuals whose familiarity of the tools are by trade skill. Machines lack the understanding of people in its ability to objectify common knowledge. This thesis describes the Adeon system, a software agent for implementation at the initial design stages whereupon the designer conceptualizes about a particular building component while the Adeon system serves to bridge the gap between design and construction knowledge, fusing the two regions to ultimately inform the designer about particular construction, design, and cost analysis constraints and opportunities upon the design proposal. The system adapts to different design situations and delivers pertinent information lending to its capacity to understand design moves and translate it to machine readable instructions for direct digital fabrication.en_US
