I have been proud to play an important role in the conception, development, and ongoing administration of our program of integrating computers into the first year of design. Understanding and communicating three-dimensional form is particularly challenging for beginning students, and, by augmenting student capabilities early in the studio process, computer modeling can accelerate the general development of fundamental design skills.

The Department of Architecture has made a long term commitment to the integration of computers into our design curriculum, starting with the design studios themselves, since the studio is the center of architectural education.

Our goal is to make modern design tools just as available to students and faculty as are traditional tools, so that day-to-day decisions about design and learning media are made only according to the actual helpfulness of each media. A cornerstone enabling this program has been student ownership of Apple Macintosh computer hardware, together with innovative software oriented toward three-dimensional design.
