summary Could information presentation on the digital platform aide knowledge formation to the extent that it changes the discourse of the overall architectural discipline? This paper discusses issues and possibilities related to architectural information presentations how tradition has shaped our position and thinking today, and how architecture students could possibly redefine digital information presentation and its conventions tomorrow. The paper highlights an experimental approach to a CAD course reintroducing digital presentation where visual explanations in architectural presenta-tions were emphasized while the strengths and indispensability of other abstractions acknowledged. The paper also discusses the process, challenges, caveats and outcomes of the course.
