title What Software for Instruction in Architecture: Today Features and Needs for the Future

summary In the last years the computer technology has evolved very fast; new tendencies were also exploded in computer programming, such as object oriented programming, but the world of Computer Science still records other news as the introduction in the market of new graphic environments or operating systems such as Windows 95. As results of this evolution all the applications currently used in CAAD teaching and for practice, were heavily updated; so they have acquired new power for the immediate use but some other features, interesting for CAAD instruction, were lost. Today, the creation inside some CAD programs of those little applications that are one of the highest moment of "learning by doing" method, starts to require more knowledge of some computer science techniques and of the operating systems too.
