With the advent of the computer in architectural design, it is becoming increasingly important for the architect to have a broad-based, thorough working knowledge of the concepts and techniques of computer-aided design (CAD). Exploring new territory, this guide covers a broad range of the drawing, design, and management issues architects are currently facing or soon will be facing. It presents both fundamental and advanced tactics that you can use to get the best possible results in applying computers to your architectural practice and is intended to help you take full advantage of the computer's assistance in visualizing and organizing your work. Both helpful tips and practical techniques are incorporated with future speculation about the computer/architecture marriage given.
