Sheltering as one of the basic needs of human emerged as a result of self defenseinstinct. It is thought that architecture is shaped as a result of this instinct. Conditionsand developement level changing by time came up with a need designing differendsized and functioned spaces. Time changings, historical events, technologicaldevelopements changed architectural products, production and presentation techniquesof human.Human take every technological discovery as a base and after he thins and producesstarting from the condition that discovery defines. The invention of computer is animportant change motivation for human. Design, presentation and production processtook a different dimention with the invention of computer at 1980?s.Design of an architectural product starts with analyse and sketching. Sketch; is astarting line, a pre presentation of architects vision fort he right solutionof designproblem. Human has a tendency to think technology changes the conditions around butnot human himself. Till today architects believed that vision is a substentive humanability, but today it is believed vision is started to be shaped by technological tools usedby man.This research is started by assignation of paradigms that are thought to effectarchitectural design and presentation techniques, invention and developement ofcomputer paradigm that started computer aided design. Research is completed by authorof this thesis expleaning her vision, design and production process of labour given byAssoc. Prof. Dr. M. Özgür Ediz within the scope of `Digital Architectural Design class.
