Abstract: "A knowledge acquisition study in the domain of tall building design was conducted. Domain experts, five structural engineers and one architect, were interviewed. The experts were asked a set of questions divided into design process and design content questions, and asked to simulate a design scenario. The experts were also shown, and asked to critique, a prototype implementation of a design grammar. In this report we describe our objectives in gathering domain knowledge, our techniques for analyzing the interviews, and the resulting domain knowledge acquired from the analysis of the interviews."
