Abstract

Architects, among other professional groups, are especially involved in the technical development of their occupation at three different levels: designed objects, ways of performing investment processes and methods of current communication. The usage of stationary and mobile computers, graphical tablets, smart phones and other multimedia equipment are currently influencing not only the way of work, but the space of workplaces as well. This paper is aimed at researching this transformation and development. A comparison between two approaches towards a design process will be made, i.e. classical – based on a drawing board and modern – with implementation of Computer Aided Design, graphical stations, virtual modeling and multimedia presentations. There will be a discussion on proper measurements and parameters of the workplace in relation to human needs and limitations tested in case studies and in literature examples. Based on conclusions, the guidelines concerning designer’s work with the modern electronic equipment will be formulated.
