Logical structure of computer-aided architectural design tools is based on object orientation. New design methodologies named Building Information Modeling or Virtual Building aim to improve this structure by synchronizing the digital object classes with real architectural products. Therefore, CAD becomes smart and parametric. But from the design educator’s point of view, most of the commercial CAD tools are not useful and too complicated to implement basic spatial concepts. This is the introduction to above conceptions using a short-term design exercise. Students at their first year of architectural education are introduced […]
