CAD - The Step Towards the Aim as a Lot of Others or Something Else
CAD Creativeness [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 83-905377-0-2] Bialystock (Poland), 25-27 April 1996 pp. 53-58
Right and left for years we have been swamped by information on equipment and software which is supposed change the quality and a designers' work style completely. In this computer and commercial deluge of words it is more and more difficult to get an understanding and clear attitude towards the dynamicly changing reality. Apart from the details of the CAD software and its influence on the effects of the architectural creative process, I would like to consider some problems connected with the influence of the CAD system on the architect's creative capabilities. Does it develope or limit these capabilities? Is a computer equipped with a CAD system a special tool (meaning the new values which it might give) or is it not?
