Design is both creative and meticulous. It is a process that involves generating ideas, then editing and refining those ideas before producing the final result. The steps in the design process are universal and can be applied to any design problem, whether it is a written document, the design of a space or the design of a product.
As a teacher, I articulate what I have learned as a professional architect and designer, sharing my accumulated knowledge and skills with the students. This information is the basis for a variety of activities that reinforce core learning objectives. Students observe, evaluate, collaborate and create as they approach each assignment as a design problem. Students communicate design concepts visually and orally using the appropriate visual communication tools for the phase of design: drawing, drafting (by hand or computer), board building and models.
