Education and training in computer-aided building design
In this paper the need for all architects to be given an appreciation and understanding of the capabilities of CAD is put forward. As in other subjects the problem of availability of suitable systems and the means by which it is integrated into existing syllabuses are discussed. Because architectural design is less scientific and more philosophical than engineering may be an argument for not using a CAD structured system, but there are many advantages to be gained from the use of a system to set against the possible disadvantages.
