Designing with computers in a paperless design computing studio

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The advancements in digital design and communications are reshaping the economics of architecture and design practices. Designing with computers is based on establishing a fruitful dialogue between the designer and the tool. The "digital imperative" to switch from analogue to digital mode have already begun to manifest itself at the schools of design and architecture in the form of the paperless Design Computing Studio (DCS). This paper describes and reflects on
the designing and teaching approach implemented in a paperless DCS
within the domain of architectural design. The paper presents the implementation of this approach, on the first year students of the new degree of Design Computing at the University of Sydney and analyses the students’ design learning experience in the DCS.
