You are quite right that computers mean more and more in the projeecting ,but I think it is very important still to se it as just another tool. This you also will know when you check how things acturly work with these programs, as what you find out is that with most of what we today think are new tech. --- is acturly just the old methods, just done faster and safer by being written into a computer program. Or do you realy think it is so fancy to "draw out" a wall from a standard Lib. ; it's not. Just this is standard CAD thing forming an ilution of a wall on a screen, hiding calculations about this wall in a spreatsheet.
But you are right that there _are_ new methods on the way, just check the link and you will se just one method very different from any, as it generate assemblies of the actural frameworks that you can transform into honeycomb structures, ------- but don't fear that computers will take over, the only thing they will do as with any new tool in the creative process, is to expand our choices.
