dc.description.abstract Computer technology and architecture have more in common than one might first think. Computers are used in architectural practices for word processing, information handling, spreadsheets, scheduling, and drafting among other applications. But the concept of using three dimensional computer modelling is relatively new, and this technology is currently trying to establish itself as a useful, if not valuable tool for architects. This report firstly describes the current uses of 3D computer modelling in architecture. To provide an insight into the possibilities and potential 3D computer modelling has, this report investigates other areas where it is presently being used, and looks at the effects it may have in the area of architecture. It also looks at the future role of 3D computer modelling in architecture and explores the prospects of virtual reality. As part of the research method, this report adopts the DELPHI Technique of surveying to poll selected experts for their views and opinions. There is also a case study of a local architectural firm, JASMAX, that reveals their experiences with 3D computer modelling and how this technology can be incorporated into a practice. This report concludes that 3D computer modelling has the potential to become as much a part of the architectural practice as computer-aided drafting has become. When architects become computer-educated and realise its potentials as a design and presentation tool, along with demands from the client, 3D computer modelling will become more widespread. en_NZ
