Drawing, Seeing, and Reasoning: The Added Value of Computer Aided Architectural Design
AVOCAAD Second International Conference [AVOCAAD Conference Proceedings / ISBN 90-76101-02-07] Brussels (Belgium) 8-10 April 1999, pp. 25-33
Viewing computer aided design in the context of the history of tools and media in architectural design reminds us that tools have consequences on the way of working. Design involves seeing, reasoning, and drawing in an iterative and interactive process. These three activities provide a framework for addressing the question of 'added value' in architectural design. A number of recent projects at the Sundance Lab illustrate how computer aided design can support these various activities.
