Povzetek: In the past, some information technologies (IT) have quickly been adopted by the engineering practice while the implementation of others has been slower. In t6he paper, the author looks for a solid theoretical background that could be used to explain this difference and warn about possible obstacles in applying some technologies to civil and structural engineering. The prevailingtheoretical background for the contemporary development in computer aided design is the ration-alistic philosophical tradition, which claims that intelligent human behavior is based on mental manipulation of symbolic representations of the real world; that problem solving is a search in a spaceof potential solutions and that communication is exchange of information.This tradition has been challenged by a theory referred to as "hermeneutic constructivism", that claims that the rationalistic premises are wrong and suggests an alternative philosophical background for the use of computers. The author confronts the two theories and discusses their impact onthe use of information technology in construction. He finds that the new theory can clarify some of the problems we face in current CAD research, as well justify some optimistic expectations of the approaches that avoid complex representations of data, activities and knowledge [COBISS.SI-ID 514401]
