Context can be described as the totality of ideas, situations and information that (a) related to, (b) provide the origins for, and (c) influence our response, perspective or judgment of a thing. Design always takes place in a context. However, current Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) systems don't have a way to represent design knowledge associated with context. This thesis presents a computational model, called Context Modeling System (CMS), in which design context is modeled. Using this model, designers can define and prioritize design context. A prototype, based on CMS and rule-based systems in the field of Artificial Intelligence, is also presented.
