This book tried to anticipate what computer-aided design systems would be like, and what their impact would be on architects and other designers. The book is written from a social and human orientation, in contrast to the machine orientation of almost all other work in the field at that time. It was intended for architects who wanted to understand, anticipate, and prepare for the impact of computers on their work. A comprehensive list of computer applications in architectural design, and a classified bibiliography make the book a valuable reference work.
