To write about Education in architecture, it is necessary to point out the theoretical part of Architecture. The application of the theories studied in architecture is the practical part which is the core subjects in the curriculum. In order to achieve the implementation of the theoretical subjects, one must be familiar with the user, the behaviour of the user in the space and the environment around them and this will be done by going through a systematic research process and continuous analysis. The methodology used is categorized into three parts “Understanding” “Idealizing” and “Presenting” all these are interconnected stages. Teaching Architecture and Learning Architecture are connected to each other in such a way that the first can’t be achieved without the second. For this students need to learn about architecture and be inspired by the fascinating built environment around them and then expect to be taught. Because “I don’t think you can teach Architecture. You can only inspire people” Zaha Hadid. Students need to observe and train their mental image and memory, as this field of study requires a lot of creativity and creativity needs knowledge and inspiration saved in the back of their head. Brainstorming is the first step taken by the lecturer to help their students to think, and by that I mean shaking the foundation of their thoughts to rebuild in a more creative way.
The fact that “design” is such a confusing term, widely used and misused in common parlance, has been problematic in the development of the design professions. If we are not careful, the mere use of the word makes any discussions about design in general flawed, muddled and unproductive. We will use this chapter to put words to our understanding of what design is, and thus steer clear of this trap.
Architecture is a major that combines education and industry during the university years of study. For this it needs a different approach of teaching. There is a process one must undergo to achieve the learning outcomes and the objectives of their courses.
It starts with an issue based learning, defined as the main problem, and this problem will be solved through systematic research and analysis we have five types of architecture design process. These types are “Linear, divisions, centralized, cycle and investigations” there are specific techniques and approaches to generate concept designs. The elements to deal with are site analysis, project brief, building analysis, user analysis, space and data requirements, the design itself. Finally the idea and the solution for the main problem.
The main difficulty in understanding design is its wide range of variety for this there is no single way of looking at it without missing some aspects of it, as it is mostly results of points of view and one's understanding of design. For this exact reason teaching design requires a lot of details and delicacy.
