This paper reports about an ongoing experience for the use of computers in the early design stages. It tries to evaluate how recent software developments in the field of CAAD will influence the way architects design and how we teach them architectural design. There is now doubt to us that the ongoing change in the technology will influence the way we work in future when we do architectural design. It is an important question for every school of architecture what effect these developments will have on our teaching and curricula. We use an ongoing educational project to try to find some answers to these questions.
