During the last three decades or so there has been a substantial shift in architectural design education. These changes have manifested in an increased criticism of the traditional design education; attempts to reconsider/rethink the basic assumptions, theories and practices of traditional design education; and calls for major changes in studio culture. The drivers of this change include epistemological, social, and economical forces among which are new knowledge and technological developments; increased use of computers and information technology in design education and practice; pressure on institutions of higher education to reduce space use; and changing student demographics. Forty five authors from all over the world come together to address new discourse in architectural design education. The 45 articles of the book are organized under nine themes: virtual and distributed design education, digital design education, digital visualization and design teaching, reflections on architectural design education, integration of studio with other teaching, theoretical issues in learning and teaching design, creativity a critical thinking, alternative studio/design built studio, and teaching studio.2.1 Virtual Construction Sites The visualization techniques that are used to develop a web-based design and ... the essentials of (1) stud-framed wooden structure, (2) reinforced concrete, and (3) steel frame construction using 3D models, ...
