In this work, several proposals are put forth in order to render computer-aid to interior architecture more efficient and easy-to-use. Considering the role of computer in architecture as a design assistant, the factors establishing this position have been discussed. Based on these factors and aspects of interior architecture, proposals are introduced. The proposals aim firstly at creating an interactive design environment where designers do not have to be specialized ‘in computers’, but ‘with the aid of computers’; secondly, at drawing attention to potential areas of study in computer-aid in design related to aspects particular to the profession of interior architecture. Finally, the expected contributions of the proposals introduced are discussed in terms of interior architectural practice and education, discussing the new definition of the profession and future trends.
