Abstract

This paper examines through a comparative analysis two methodologies that integrate computer technology into the design environment. 3-Dimensional representation and abstract/volumetric form are used to explore composition as a tool to aid the designer in developing alternative design solutions. Specially designed interactive software is used to aid the student in evaluating a design by converting abstract form into realistic imagery. The results of the research indicate that the most effective way to teach students to design using computers is by reinforcing the fundamentals of design theory while introducing a palette of graphic commands. -from Authors
