Evolution of trends in the realm of computer aided architectural design (CAAD) has seen the convergence of technologies complementing traditional tools with emerging sciences like Information Technology (IT) and multimedia applications. This applique of technologies has not just expanded the scope and enhanced the realm of CAAD research and practice, but is also breaking new frontiers. This creative nexus will be realised at the 7th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research In Asia (CAADRIA 2002) to be held at the Faculty of Creative Multimedia, Multimedia University, Malaysia, between 18th-20th April, 2002. CAADRIA 2002 it's theme, "Redefining Content", seeks to recognise and infuse these emerging components in the field of architecture and design with a holistic approach towards online, digital and interactive systems. The 41 papers compiled were selected through a blind review process conducted by an international review panel. To reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of this year's conference, the chapters are arranged topically to facilitate the in-depth study of key components. The component sessions include: Web Design, Database and Networks CAD, Modelling and Tools Collaborative Design, Creative Design and Case Reasoning Simulation and Prototyping Virtual Environment and Knowledge Management // Design Education, Teaching and Learning We believe that this specialised approach will provide a deeper and more illuminating feel of the various components and their critical convergence in the field of architecture and design.
