Communication via computers, and their application to architectural design

Mizutani Akihiro

Associate Professor, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering

The use of computers in architectural design and urban development, starting with 3D-Computer-aided Design (CAD) and Building Information Modeling (BIM), is already common, and dates back to the Sixties, right at the dawn of the computer era. Associate Prof. Mizutani has been looking into the potential of computers as thinking tools by delving into the history of computer use in architectural design, and reassessing its significance. In addition to theoretical research, he is also working on implementation design, pursuing the optimal ways to combine our strengths with those of computers, or existing systems and computers, while working on implementation design.
