Learning to Compute in Design by Making Geometry


Benay Gürsoy


The ideal of an introductory, universal studio for diverse design disciplines of Vorkurs is still inherent in contemporary basic design education. The abstract visual language of basic design exercises provides a theoretical and practical basis for any design discipline. The abstract tasks that are generally detached from the complexity of real world problems in a basic design curriculum engage students with intensive reflective thinking, and enable them to directly “reflect on their reasoning over a simpler and formal vocabulary” (Gürsoy and Özkar, 2015).
