A Teaching Methodology for Parametric Design: A Case Study with Parametric Bench

Conference full papers:

In parametric design-oriented elective courses given in the architecture departments, most of the parametric designs generally remain at the modeling stage and cannot pass to the design application stage. In this study, this situation was determined as a research problem. Therefore, an experimental method within the scope of the parametric design course was considered. The applied method was discussed and the result product was evaluated. The applied method not only overcame the research problem, but also helped students to develop creativity and collaborative competency.
