The research aims to identify the effectiveness of computational thinking in developing the thinking skills of the architectural designer to create creativity .The research revealed the extent to which the results were achieved for the goal sought by the research in upgrading the process of architectural education to develop skills and the difficulties facing the learning process and skill development. The researcher followed the descriptive analytical survey method through the use of the personal interview and the questionnaire as a tool for collecting information from the study sample. The results were treated statistically using the (SPSS) program. It has the ability to improve the educational process and achieve its objectives with a high degree of proficiency, Therefore, the research problem was (creating a method for developing the skills of the architectural designer based on algorithms to develop the designer’s mental abilities as an intellectual tool before it is computational).In order to solve this problem, the researcher put a vision within the general research hypothesis (computer thinking is a successful educational method at the level of education and advanced cognitive design).It is achieved through the special hypothesis (computer thinking works to develop the skills of the architectural designer and develop his capabilities).The descriptive analytical method was adopted for a set of questionnaires, which gave the reliability of the hypothesis stability. That computational thinking skills, including algorithms, be an essential part on which the curricula are built.
