Computer-Aided Architectural Design Futures contains the proceeding of the International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design, held at Department of Architecture, Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands on September 18-19, 1985. Organized into four parts, the book underlines concepts on computer-aided architectural design. These include systematic design; drawing and visualization; artificial intelligence and knowledge engineering; and implications for practice.
