HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS VERSUS 3D COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN – EXPERIMENTS IN BASIC ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION FOR UNDERGRADUATES

Architectural and urban design education have a variety of tools for practicing the knowledge: free hand drawing, geometric drawing, sculpturing, hands-on modelling workshops, computer aided design (3d modelling) and many other. Some of the tools may be suitable for teaching undergraduates. In this study the authors present lessons from experimental workshops for pupils with no architectural or urban design theoretical background. The aim of the workshops was to present the basic knowledge in the field by active participation and team work with physical models (by hands-on modelling) and with 3-dimensional models. In order to collect data a scale consisting of 14 questions was developed by the researchers. The findings of the study showed that teaching by both methods had a positive effect on the undergraduates. Even though the traditional teaching methods which are becoming obsolete (e.g. hands- on modelling) have more advantages and positive effects in education, it turns out that there is an always increasing interest in digital 3D modelling inspite of it being less effective. Both authors are architects and lecturers who deal with education on different levels. The authors believe that computer aided drawing might be a major method for teaching the youth in the future.
