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. This book will be a major reference text for students, researchers, and practitioners.
Part One: Systematic Design

4 The Profits of CAAD Can Be Increased by an Integrated Participatory Design Approach
Part Two: Drawing and Visualization
5 Computer Graphics and Visualization
6 Three-Dimensional Input and Visualization
7 3RM: A Spatial Relational Reference Model
8 Three-Dimensional Visualization: A Case Study
Part Three: Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering
