||Computerised Craftsmanship [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Paris (France) 24-26 September 1998
||What a Difference a Tool Makes : discoveries made during the evolution of the Advanced Design Studio (a.k.a. 'working drawings') at the
University of Texas at Austin since the time this core course was switched to computers, when student design teams were provided with computers
and required to use them for design and presentation. Covers the period from the course?s inception in 1991 to the present, during which the course
has been under the continuing aegis of Professor Richard Dodge, who has taught design since 1967.
Contrapuntal presentation by Professor Dodge and co-instructor and former student Marla Smith: what was done, what worked, and what went
wrong. Discusses students, faculty, hardware, software, design problems assigned, and the most educational computer-related catastrophes.
