This paper explores the definition of methods and skills in digital architectural design; it argues that the potential of new digital technologies in architectural education is currently not fully used, because these digital processes are taught following traditional paper-based methods. Innovative digital architectural design does not only use digital skills in the design process, but also calls for specific digital design methods. This paper attempts to identify specific digital design methods, which allow for a re-active, two-way human-computer interaction and critical feedback during the conceptualization process of architectural projects. Furthermore, this research paper offers specific project examples in each of the analyzed methods. It suggests a holistic application of these methods in an experimental architectural education course, aiming at preparing students towards exploring digital architectural design methods and at the same time learning digital skills.
