title The Computer as a Tectonic Design Tool: Comparisons between Virtual and Actual Construction
source Digital Design [21th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-1-6] Graz (Austria) 17-20 September 2003, pp. 265-268
summary The potential of the computer as a tectonic design tool is explored in comparison to scaled physical models, drawings and real-scale modelling (actual construction). Analysis of media use is undertaken in a case study of a range of design projects of differing emphases in relation to student perceptions and assessment. Relationships are drawn between representational media actual construction to inform a discussion of effective and authentic means of teaching tectonics within the design studio.
