Is BIM making you a better designer?
As we all already there is not such a tool that is going to make you smarter or improve your skills when using it. Tools help us to resolve problems, to develop our work. Is true that in that way they can help to enhance our capabilities and break some barriers while using them.
Honestly I do not think that BIM is going to make you a better designer but for sure is going to help you with your design process. By using certain tools you will be the one that “may improve your own skills”.
This article by Shoegnome (Jared Banks) is a good metaphor of this fact.
