summary In this paper, which will cite as illustrations some of the documents that have resulted in the completion of the Carnegie Mellon University College of Fine Arts Niches, we will discuss the interdependent relationship between craft and technology in architectural computer modeling practice. We will suggest that practical uses of the computer demand the counterbalancing intimacy of craft in the design studio. Our goal in the Niches Project was to couple direct tactile experience, historical knowledge, and the precise operations afforded by computers.
