Architectural design involves the integration of diverse, sometimes conflicting, concepts and requirements into a coherent single composition. This paper proposes a method for negotiating architectural design across domains, by examining issues of ontology, perception, generation and evaluation, and detailing a prototype in which these mechanisms are augmented using computational agents for achieving coherence and innovation in remote collaborative design. The paper proposes a common geometric and topological database, from which multiple semantic models are constructed. Filter Mediated Design is intended to explore the processes and strategies of constructing intelligent designs and design intelligence.
