summary This paper reviews two projects undertaken in a CAD programming course that demonstrate to the students how programs could be developed to investigate possible architectural forms. The projects highlight a very sequential approach to form investigation in using both common geometries and the introduction of randomness to control design rules. This approach stressed the development of rules and evaluating their results as a method to determine the next step to investigate. Equal importance was placed on the anticipated, as well as, the unexpected.
