A handicapped person, say someone missing a hand or part of an arm, who wants begin study towards becoming an architect needs CAD immediately. remember, it's all really an issue of accessibility, and no one should be deprived of the power to "draw".

the state of drawing in education
"The third phase is distinguished from the second only because in the later period the number of partial images is increased as much as possible to create the effect of infinitely more images."
Frankl, Principles of Architectural History, p. 152.

Hitler's Words Into Stone. Can architecture itself be fascist?
This is all kind of a reenactment of things that happened 30 odd years ago. Krier started publishing stuff about Speer back in the late 1970s, with the full book coming out in 1985.
I know I read some of Krier's interviews with Speer sometime in the early 1980s [sic], but I can't remember where they were published, I'm thinking maybe in Eisenman's Skyline. And before that there was Krier's "Vorwarts, Kameraden, Wir Mussen Zuruck" in (Eisenman's) Oppositions 24 (1981).
It might be interesting to compare reactions then to reactions now, keeping in mind the whole "politically correct" movement happened in between. Also, "Krier likes Speer" is an interesting component of the shift from liberal '70s to conservative '80s.
Relatedly, Architecture Design Profile 23 Neo-Classicism (1979) addresses the whole "Fascist" architecture issue.

Hitler's Words Into Stone. Can architecture itself be fascist?
The interview with Speer that I read in the late 1970s was not conducted by Krier, rather by Francesco Dal Co and Sergio Polano, and was published in Oppositions 12 (1979). Also in Oppositions 12, following the interview, is Frampton's "A Synoptic View of the Architecture of the Third Reich."
The image at the top of this news item...

...is the portico of the garden front of Speer's Neue Reichskanzlei, Berlin. The room behind the portico was Hitler's formal office.
