Didactical design methods applied in design studios for Architectural and Cultural Sciences in Brazil: Experiment Digital Space: composition with elements design by Mies van der Rohe and the importance of their Web presentation

Publikation: Beiträge in SammelwerkenAufsätze in KonferenzbändenForschungbegutachtet


This empirical research project is a didactical teaching method intended to introduce students interested in space to theoretical architecture topics using specific computer capacities. In different variations, this teaching method was tested on students of Cultural Sciences and Architecture in Brazil and in Germany. With this method, even students without previous CAD or architecture experience can creatively design spaces. Visualization of the design process as Web design joins the individual aspects to a logical composite and applies the computer as "brain-craft" to complement handcraft. For the creative tasks, this means interaction in a complex information structure where the borders between the disciplines fade.
