In a conversation, when I tell someone I am an architecture student, the thing they seem to be dying to know is "So...do you use computers and stuff for drafting?" I've gotten this response many of times, as if the computer is the most impressive thing in my profession. Why? I understand that I am part of the new generation of computer drafting/modeling and hand drafting is dying, but who doesn't use a computer in any profession? There must be some sort of aura(Walter Benjamin) of using a computer to construct and design.
