Design is everywhere in people’s life, and as the recent development of computation technologies, Computational Design, a relatively new research field that integrating concepts from computer science to design process, has been becoming increasingly popular. Because the field is highly interdisciplinary, quickly updating and relatively new, there is a lack of an effective and systematic window to observe it. To find principles and insights about topics and keywords, geographic distribution, the collaboration of researchers and historical evolution in computational design, my thesis utilizes interactive visualization techniques to analyze the field based on topic modeling and bibliometrics.
