summary Many great architectural endeavors today engage in a multi software approach, as each specialty involved needs a different software, and different task required from the architect, such as 3D modeling, analysis or rendering, also benefit from the use of different tools. Combining them in the same process is not always a successful endeavor. A more effective portability mechanism is needed, and Algorithmic Design (AD) has the potential to become one. This paper explores the advantages of the algorithmic approach to the design process, and proposes a methodology capable of integrating the different tools and paradigms currently used in architecture. The methodology is based on the development of a computer program that describes not only the intended model, but also additional tasks, such as the required analysis and rendering. It takes advantage of CAD, BIM and analysis tools, with little effort when it comes to the transition between them.
