‘Architecture in the age of computer aided design

Previous generations of architects used traditional drawing skills to develop their design concepts with pencil, ink and paper. Like every other profession, architecture is now part of the digital age. From concept development through to presentation and fabrication, all areas of architectural design and production have been affected by this shift from traditional drawing office to digital workspace.

In this talk Associate Professor Anthony Burke, UTS School of Architecture, will examine the impact of technological change on architectural design. Drawing on international examples, Anthony will discuss some of the key changes in the way architects work in the 21st century. He will also indicate the likely future directions of architectural design as the influence of digital technologies increases.

Presented by the Australian Institute of Architects NSW.
