Architects have made it clear that technology has its benefits. It has spread intomany of the firms across the country and is part of the education that many aspiringarchitects get. Besides we’ll take any assistance we can get in shortening the work froman all-nighter to a couple of hours. The first reason that Architects use programs is justthat. It is quicker! Computers, with their automated steps and processes assist thearchitect in almost every imaginable way. It can rotate a piece of the design, cut a section,show a certain view—anything the Architect wants, the computer can do it. But does theshorter amount of time spent actually designing mean that the thought is less? Architectand Assistant Professor at the University of Miami, Jacob Brillhart, says in an articlefrom Classicist, “The blind dependence on CAD and other software and other toolsincreases after architecture school as young designers continue to design things they donot understand. Working under sever time constraints, they make maximum use of thecopy and paste commands, pulling details, elevations and wall sections from past projectsand reassembling them” (Brillhart). With a computer one can simply input a fewkeystrokes and the task is instantaneously done, a “drawing” is done without oncelooking at the consequences and results. He goes on to add, “When one draws, oneunderstands and remembers; when one uses the right click command, one does neither”(Brillhart).
