BIM Opinion: Can using BIM make architects become lazy?

Earlier today, BIMcrunch covered Russell Curtis’ controversial guest report for Building Design Online, in which he stated that architects may become lazy due to abandoning the designing of buildings via 2D drawings for Building Information Modelling.

Do you agree or disagree Curtis’ comments? Was he in the wrong to compare clash detection within BIM to good architects ” knowing how to design a building properly”? We got your comments on Twitter and here they are.
