Abstract:
Over the years landscape architecture has sluggishly pursued the adaptation of computers as design tools. However, computerized conceptual design tools have fallen far behind Computer Aided Drafting and other design tools in availability and productivity. This has been attributed to the computer's failure to support the creative methods of landscape architects. Three surveys were conducted to examine this perceived problem. These surveys, focusing on computer usage, design methodology, and the adaptation of pen-based computers, will be a basis for future research in landscape architecture. These surveys found that pen-based computers may eventually be useful tools in landscape architecture, but only if computer technology continues to advance and if extensive research is conducted to explore their viability and practicality.
