summary This paper examines how, when, why and why not architecture students today use widely available digital toolkits. It also compares and makes observations on the work and nature of both analog and digital tools. The setting for the inquiry is an architectural design studio where, with no specific mandate to use specific tools from the part of the instructors, students were let free to use whatever tools they could find to explore, develop and finally present their design solutions. The paper reflects and focuses on the success and effective use of digital tools by students who opted to use new digital toolkits.
