summary In recent years, the CAAD technique become more and more popular in most of architectural design institutions in China. Then, like in many other countries, CAAD in China is mainly used for making working drawings and perspectives, a drawing tool not a design tool, and the traditional architectural design process still remain unchanged. The decision making and layout approaching of the designs are based on the skills and experiences of architects, lacking of effective means for architects making design analysis and evaluation during designing.

title Information Architects
source Graphic Press Ltd., Zurich, Switzerland
summary There is a tsunami of data that is crashing onto the beaches of the civilized world. This is a tidal wave of unrelated, growing data formed in bits and bytes, coming in an unorganized, uncontrolled, incoherent cacophony of foam. None of it is easily related, none of it comes with any organization methodology. Now for the good news: There is a dune on the beach. There is a breakwater in the ocean that is clearly emerging in these last fleeting moments of the 20th century. The breakwater is indeed breaking up the tsunami of data and focusing it in a more organized way to answer our questions and concerns. There is a new breed of graphic designers, exhibition designers, illustrators and photographers, whose passion it is to make the complex clear. I call this new breed of talented thinkers Information Architects and this book was created to help celebrate and understand the importance of their work - a work which inspires hope that as we expand our capabilities to inform and communicate that we will value, with equal enthusiasm, the design of understanding.
