summary The Leonardo da Vinci project AVOCAAD-stage (Added Value of Computer Aided Architectural Design Stage, with the help of the European Commission) is a placement programm which enables young architects to gain practical experience in the use of computers in design offices, especially during the early phases of the design process. Experiments and the creative use of new possibilities offered by computers are encouraged. Through placements, discussions and experimentation the project gains valuable information on the possibilities of computers during the design process.

As a result of these placements we will obtain reports from people in several design offices. We will first give an overview of the main experiences. The authors will then formulate the main results and discuss the possibilities offered by computers for collaboration, what the implications of 3D Modelling are and what the implications can be for the design process.

Topics and ideas will be illustrated with presentations of design work.
