Furniture Design Critic

Collaborators: Yeonjoo Oh, Ellen Yi-Luen Do, Suguru Ishizaki


The Furniture Design Critic proposes a computational model of design critiquing. A critiquing comment has two dimensions: (1) delivery types (interpretation, introduction/ reminder, example, demonstration, and evaluation) and (2) communication modalities (written comments, graphical annotations, and images). The Furniture Design Critic system selects particular methods by considering specific conditions such as the user’s knowledge level and the interaction history between the user and the system.
