||One of the main aims of this research was to highlight the influence of computer as a designing tool.
Their wide acceptance as drawing tools might occult the importance of their role in architectural design.
We will try to apprehend, with the help of synthetic images, that computers mark a historic step forward
in drawing and representation, as well as a major progress in the understanding of creative processes.
Together these features offer a broader horizon to architectural design. New source of inspiration can
be found in virtual reality that makes visible what does not really exist, permitting design to suggest itself
with its primordial image. We mean a kind of architectural imprint, where the first three-dimensional lines
suggest in some way the designer with their shape, and encourage the definition process.
Through the visualisation of some images, it is possible to show the modifications of language and style,
to examine the transformation modalities of the design process and to propose an essay of the new
methods to communicate architecture.
