This paper describes a teaching experience conducted and carried out as part of
the coursework of first year students of architecture in two different countries. The workshop
is the second of three workshops planned to take place during the course of the first year
studio, aimed at introducing new ways of thinking and introducing students to a new pattern
of architectural education.
The experiment was planned under the theme of “Production” in the mid-stage that is
considered the operational stage of the design process. It also succeeded a recognition
stage in which the students’ visual reasoning skills were targeted with more open and less
determined design tasks. A grammatical approach was chosen to deliver the methodology in
the design studio, based on the shape grammar methodology.
