||Since the CAD methods were invented, the systematization of information in CAD has been strongly
connected to the computerization of architect’s workshop. Nowadays, in 90., this systematization has to
the great extent negative consequences. A designer understands the systematization of information
through abilities and disabilities of the one, particular graphical aided documentation development
system, which he deploys himself. The traditional method of design is clearly opposed to the
computerized method. Data bases are seen by architects as a set of information describing particular
and unique architectural project and some selected aspects correlated with narrow specialization of
designer. Collaboration between participants of design process is still very challenging due to the usage
of different tools and different systematization of information.
It is necessary to define modern part of information in architectural design. The systematization of
information should be a foundation for development of computer systems and not contrary, in this way it
will be possible to overcome opposition between traditional and computerized techniques. Architect’s
workshop, from the point of view of the informational structure of ongoing information exchange
processes, should in greater part relay on the experience of structural analysis used for development of
information systems in business. Effective utilization of computer methods requires the extension of
collaboration between all the participants of design process, search for active access to distributed data
bases (i.e. Internet) and increase of methodological consciousness (the ability to form own design
strategies, methods and structures) indispensable for development of modern CAD systems which
wouldn’t be limited to a computer graphics.
