CAAd Futures is a Bi-annual Conference that aims at promoting the advancement of computer aided architectural design in the service of those concerned with the quality of the built environment. The conferences are organised under the auspices of the CAAD Futures Foundation which has its secretariat at the Eindhoven University of Technology. The Series of conferences started in 1985 in Delft, and has since travelled through Eindhoven, Boston, Zurich, Pittsburgh, Singapore, Munich, and Atlanta.
The book contains the proceedings of the 9th CAAD Futures conference which took place at Eindhoven University of Technology, 8-11 of July, 2001. The Articles in this book cover a wide range of subjects and provide an excellent overview of the state-of-the-art in research on computer aided architectural design.
The following categories of articles are included:

Capturing design;
Information modelling;
CBR techniques;
Virtual reality;
CAAD education;
(Hyper) Media;
Design evaluation;
Design systems development;
Design representation;
Knowledge management;
Form programming;
Architectural analysis;
Urban design.
