This paper introduces a reflective perspective on the role of

computing in architectural design over the generations of

computer aided architectural designs. Paradigms of the design

process and computational models of designing are discussed.

The evolution of computer aided architectural design is

investigated. Both deadly sins and arguable virtues of

computing in architecture and their implications are reviewed.

The paper introduces an approach for the new generations of

computer aided architectural design (CAAD) that has the

potential to provide a better CAAD future for architectural

researchers, educators and professionals
