RE-DESIGNING ARCHITECTURAL ARTEFACTS: A BUILDING'S LEARNING PROCESS
The relevance and use of a taxonometric design method in architectural education is discussed. Based on and nourished by the (architectural) (re-)design process, which is considered a complex interaction of different activities (cognitive, motorial and social), the first ideas for this method are given. An architectural redesign assignment was set up specifically to test the advantages a steering method can evoke in a group of third year architecture students. First the setup of the assignment is confronted with a set of concepts elaborated by the authors. Next a discussion is started on how these concepts are or are not supported by the proposed method of teaching redesign in architecture.
