A critiquing system helps designers improve their design artifacts by providing feedback. Computer-aided critiquing systems have been built in many fields and provide us with useful lessons. In this paper we analyze existing critiquing systems in terms of (1) critiquing process, (2) critiquing rules, and (3) intervention techniques. Based on this analysis, we suggest new research directions for critiquing systems in the domain of architectural design.
