Type

Year
2010
Knowledge, skill and design are three basic components of architecture education. Knowledge, i.e. theoretical part of the education can be taught by taking assistance from education technology. Skill has to be taught by demonstration. However teaching “design” is still being discussed and debated. The paper is about establishing the fact that process is important in teaching design and in continuous development of tender minds of students. The paper also demonstrates briefly the process adopted and established at our college, with a careful conscience of not leading the stakeholders into the rut, so that it is never forgotten that creativity is the essential component of design. An example of third-year design studio is chosen to demonstrate the progression in learning process of a student and to demonstrate the applicability of local context.
