title Collaborative Digital Design: When the Architect Meets the Software Engineer
source Achten, Henri; Pavlicek, Jiri; Hulin, Jaroslav; Matejovska, Dana (eds.), Digital Physicality - Proceedings of the 30th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2 / ISBN 978-9-4912070-3-7, Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Architecture (Czech Republic) 12-14 September 2012, pp. 87-96
summary Increasingly more architects use programming as a means for form finding and design exploration, a tendency that is expected to continue. Even though significant progress has been made in the simplifi cation of programming languages, complex design tasks might still require large coding efforts. We do not think it is wise to force architects to also become experts in programming languages and software engineering. Instead, similarly to what happened with other design and building disciplines, we think that the future of digital design lies in the collaborative effort of architects and software engineers. In this paper we analyze different situations where such collaboration increases productivity and frees the architect to more creative tasks.
