summary In the design process of some recent, specific architectural projects the part elaborated by computers and machines significantly grows. They could generate, optimize and produce the most complicated and complex solutions, taking over some tasks which before were the domain of architects. This article presents a project carried out by postgraduate students at Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule in Zurich, Switzerland, where such a digital design process was implemented, with all its advantages and disadvantages. The observations and conclusions gained during the work allow the author to formulate the concept of Architect-Aided Computing Design, to define some challenges for architects created by such a working method, and to present an analysis about the potential new software for architectural production.
