This study considers how and when students actively move between analogue (traditional), and digital methods (CAD/BIM) of design exploration. It maps the design process to explore how traditional methods with the convention of abstraction are becoming intermixed with the opportunities of synthetic simulation, via digital methods, during the students’ design process. The studies original contribution to knowledge focuses on a deeper understanding of how and when analogue and digital methods are used in the design process, collated to design out comes. It is, foremost, the first study in this subject area to analyse the use of CAD and BIM in parallel with traditional methods of abstraction and simulation in the design process.
