title Digital Design Tools vs. Sketching in Design

summary This paper reports on and updates a research project which seeks to address two fundamental questions. Does the current breed of user friendly 3D CAAD software really enhance our design abilities when compared to more traditional techniques like sketching and how might the use of such software inform how we teach the new generation of architectural students. It furthermore summarizes the results of a web questionnaire that tries to find out the current main tools in the early design phases amongst architectural practitioners in two European countries.
