Abstract: In the conventional method of architecture, planning is done according to the building type, the framework of the past or existing buildings, by referring to the user requirements provided by the user ([6], [4]). This process does not depend much on the user requirements, but on the building types. However, architectures built according to the building types cannot meet contemporary user’s requirements, which are specialized and diversified. A revolution in the building types, therefore, is an ambitious architectural goal to achieve [3]. To implement an architecture independently of the building types, it is crucial to obtain sufficient user requirements in order to be able to use them in the design process. But there is no method to bring the viewpoint of the user into the process of architectural planning [1]. The Method of Object Extraction for Architecture (OEA method) is a new method to realize it using object technology. Its recursive process and visual diagrams help the user to remind unconscious knowledge and to generate new knowledge of the requirements for the building. As a result, the OEA method extracts the user’s knowledge thoroughly and translates it into documents effectively. This article is an introduction to the OEA method. We apply the method to a real house building project to analyse its results and design process. We also contrast the features of the OEA method with two other methods of architectural analysis and logical design, to illustrate how the method realizes comprehensibly a logical view of the building.
