Professionals such as product designers, architects, and engineers have an intrinsic relationship with drawing, using it to represent everything from the creative sketches of a proposal to its production. In this sense, technical drawing and sketching techniques are a relevant part of design education. In this context, this article presents an analysis of drawings developed by product design students from different countries working in the Global Studio 2018, an international interinstitutional project. In this edition, undergraduate product design students from five universities from four countries (Brazil, Italy, Japan and Turkey) worked in sixteen paired teams, simultaneously playing the roles of "client" and "designer". This study deals with the work of three teams from a Brazilian university and its paired teams, one from Japan and two from Turkey. To support this study, nine categories of analysis were used: Type of drawing; Material used; Quality of the Trace; Presence of Text; Scale; Drawing Communication; Differences and similarities in the drawings of the teams of each country and between members of the same team. In some cases, students used drawings as mere illustrations for detailed textual descriptions of their design concepts. In others, they presented their design concepts by isometric drawings and frontal visions, using texts only as complementary information. The results allowed to identify how the students articulated different forms of drawing for the same purpose.

INTERACTION BETWEEN DESIGN STUDIO AND CURRICULUM COURSES: Bilkent University Case
Turkkan, Elif E.; Basa, İnci; Gurel, Meltem O. (2010-09-01)
A major aim of the design studio is to educate students to be well-equipped designers. To do so, a student should be able to grasp the divergent information of various courses and integrate that knowledge into their design problems. But are students aware of the emphasis placed on incorporating different curriculum courses into the design studio? Do they find it beneficial while developing a design project? To what extent do they think this integration has an impact on their success in the design studio and...
Analogical Models In Architecture And Urban Design
Abel, Chris (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 1988)
In an earlier article, "Function of Tacit Knowing in Learning to Design!' (Abel, 1981c), I suggested that design researchers need to pay more attention to the way architects actually create their designs, rather than relying on the idealized models of design processes dreamed up by themselves. This article is intended to help fill that need, and outlines the major types of analogical models used by architects, together with some straightforward explanations of the main concepts involved. The assumptive phil...
Integrating 3D physical and digital modeling into 3D form creation in industrial design education
Öztürk Şengül, Mehtap; Hasdoğan, Gülay Fatma; Department of Industrial Design (2016)
Digital design media have entered in the design field in the course of the last couple of decades and have rapidly changed the way of practicing in design related professions. As part of this change, digital modeling has taken its place among the basic skills that an industrial designer is expected to have. As a cognitive activity, modeling plays very significant roles in the form creation related skill acquisition processes in design education. Therefore an urgent need for new approaches for the integratio...
Exploring the perspectives of jury members from different fields of expertise in industrial design competitions
Dilek, İrem; Kaygan, Pınar (2018-03-07)
In the last decade, the number of industrial design competitions in Turkey addressing industrial design students and young designers has increased significantly. The increase in the number, and the educational scholarships that are provided to the design students and young professionals,brought industrial design competitions into prominence among design promotion activities. In addition, design promotion activities that are organized with the aim of increasing visibility of industrial design profession in T...
Architectural programming for achieving value-added design
Akınç, Günseli; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Architecture (2005)
Values and concerns of project participants have influence on design quality as well as on the design process itself. These determine the functional, social and æsthetic characteristics of the project that are necessary to achieve client satisfaction. The issues of value and quality are compared within the context of architectural programming, including their theoretical and philosophical ground as well as current management techniques. Value and quality can be misunderstood and confused with each other; th...
