Abstract

We explore and discuss the possibility of discovering new design concepts for existing immovable objects. Existing immovable objects include such items as buildings or stadiums that are unable to be relocated. By analogy, the positional relationship of some automotive components, such as a door mirror or front lamp, are also unable to be changed. By introducing a web-based application, along with the map of a city or a drawing sheet, we propose a flow model for a design concept informed by art and architectural construction methods. We discuss how the flow model of such a design concept would be applicable for immovable objects by referring to cases of city design and automotive product design. We suggest that an intermediate level of knowledge is a key resource for discovering a new design concept based on connecting immovable objects with their surroundings, which, in this paper, refers to an object's entire context.
