The symposium at Salford in September 2009 brought together around 100 experts on the use of Digital Technology in architectural design. They included architects, CAD experts, people from the software industry and academics. The overwhelming impression was one of transition; people are experimenting, techniques and tools used last year will be superseded by next, each project is handled differently from the one before. Everything is fluid; representations, tool sets, workflow, team structure, personnel, and even philosophy. Consensus was certainly far away, but two ideas were clearly gaining significant traction. One was Building Information Modelling (BIM), and the other Parametric Design (PD).
