summary This paper traces the relationship of CAAD with creative studio work within a ‘year based’ school of architecture where the curriculum is founded on a series of ‘Core Projects’. These ‘Core Projects’ are structured so that undergraduates undertake a structured study of the essentials of architecture in an orderly progression. Within this pattern CAAD is not a stand-alone subject or module and as students do not work in units, it is difficult to run specialist CAAD options. The subject is regarded as another skill in communication and tuition in CAAD is provided as part of the acquisition of central architectural skills. CAAD, therefore is regarded as one of the components of skills and knowledge needed to support and the ‘Core Projects’ which account for about 70% of the course assessment. The paper will analyse the evolution of CAAD education within this kind of course in Architecture, reflecting on some of the tensions that have arisen through this and use student work to illustrate some of the lessons learnt over this period
