summary 
Modern architecture takes advantage of the greatly increasing design possibilities. Yet, architects are not just a new group of CAD users. Scale and construction technologies pose new challenges to engineering and design. We are convinced that those can be met more effectively with a solid understanding of geometry. Thus, an academic CAAD curriculum has to meet these requirements. We introduce our approach taken at TU Vienna and focus on the firstterm mandatory course on geometry for architecture.
