In architecture computers are taken for granted as a means of working today. However, critical inspection into the present day usage of computer applications, reveals that only "established" tools and workflows are transferred to the computer. Although the use of computers has already led to a strong influence on the way we work, the process is far from complete.

Against a background of growing global construction projects with rapidly increasing complexity, the accumulation and transfer of architectural knowledge is immanent. High-performance IT infrastructures in this area set free enormous potential, but also produce a currently unmanageable flood of information. The question must be asked, where architecture will exist in terms of practical applications, teaching and research at the beginning of the 21st century.
