summary Current CAD systems have inherent bottlenecks, which diminish possible achievements for architectural practices. Among these shortcomings there are two the paper will deal with. Firstly, traditional CAD relies on a pure geometric model. All non-geometric information about objects of architectural interest has to be attached to these geometric entities. This restricts the ability to describe semantically dependent relationships. Secondly, the integration of different design tools for building and construction is still at its very beginning. The data exchange remains restricted, since it is based on a fairly low semantic level of a document-based exchange of information, such as geometric representation in DXF or IGES, rather than on a high semantic level of a model-based exchange.
