The III International Workshop Digital Design Processes (DDPIII) at the ESAP - Porto/Portugal - wishes to continue to discuss the implementation of digital tools in architecture and will try to develop the theoretical background into a practical experience about the integration of new digital technologies of drawing (CAD) and manufacture (CAM) in architecture.

This edition follows the seminar Digital Architecture and the DDPI e DDPII editions, held in previous years. For seven days, a restricted group of students will be oriented in the development of a concise practical work, that will explore the constructive and creative possibilities opened through digital processes.
