Programming studies

Vectorworks Architect and Landmark provide several tools for creating and managing space programming study information in both tabular and graphical formats, including an adjacency matrix, bubble diagram, and stacking diagram.

In an adjacency matrix worksheet, information is used to automatically create the following items in the drawing:

A bubble diagram, containing space objects for each space in the matrix, with the appropriate area and department information, and space links connecting the spaces, with line weights indicating the strength of the relationship between the spaces

An adjacency matrix diagram

An adjacency score object, showing the total lengths of all the space links

A stacking diagram (Architect required)


The space objects are square when they are first created, but they can be reshaped with the Reshape tool. The spaces can be repositioned to create clusters of related spaces.
