Aim: Evolution process in information and communication technologies, architectural design and therefore in the field of architecture; It goes from product representation and communication use, which can be modeled in the computer environment, to the processing of data, information and information, to support creativity and decision making, an activity specific to human mental processes. In this process, many computational design methods have been developed that play an important role in contemporary design practices and guide the change of design culture in recent years. The top aim in this study presented; It is the evaluation of the methods developed in the field of computational design through the life cycle model. Method: At the point of investigating the spread and usage of the design methods included in the study within the sample area, bibliometric analysis, and content analysis methods, which are used to evaluate scientific studies, was used to draw repeatable and valid results regarding the content of the examined text. Results: The study shows that the most published design methods in the computational design are simulation-based design, structure information modeling, shape grammars, and genetic algorithms, respectively. In addition, it is determined that the most preferred international congress in this field is eCAADe. According to the evaluation of the total number of publications in this field, the contribution of Turkish researchers to the field was found to be 3%. Conclusion: This study evaluated when the upper scale, which are related to computational design methods in Turkey, we can conclude that there is insufficient scientific studies. In order to be able to use the rapidly developing computational design tools more effectively, to improve the computational design ability and to reflect the education process in the design process, it is important to have a voice in the architecture of the future.
