The first program was installed back in the architectural rendering software, to help architects save time instead of drawing their blueprints. It has an explicit object database of building parts and construction knowledge.
It explicitly supports the creation of architectural objects. In a more general sense, CAAD also refers to the use of any computational technique in the field of architectural design other than by means of architecture-specific software. These programs can produce photo realistic 3d renders and animations. In 1974 Caad became a current word and was a common topic of commercial modernization.
CAAD has two types of structures in its program. The first system is surface structure which provides a graphics medium to represent three-dimensional objects using two-dimensional representations. Also algorithms that allow the generation of patterns and their analysis using programmed criteria, and data banks that store information about the problem at hand and the standards and regulations that applies to it. Another advantage to CAAD is the two way mapping of activities and functionalities.
These mappings are abstractions that are introduced in order to discuss the process of design and deployment of CAAD systems. In designing the systems the system developers usually consider TM1. An architect’s work involves mostly visually represented data. Problems are often outlined and dealt with in a graphical approach. Only this form of expression serves as a basis for work and discussion.
Therefore, the designer should have maximum visual control over the processes taking place within the design continuum. Further questions occur about navigation, associative information access, programming and communication within very large data sets. Computer aided architectural design futures .
