title An Enchanted Toy Based on Froebel’s Gifts: A computational tool used to teach architectural knowledge to students
source Promise and Reality: State of the Art versus State of Practice in Computing for the Design and Planning Process [18th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9523687-6-5] Weimar (Germany) 22-24 June 2000, pp. 35-39
summary Assuming that students can require architectural knowledge through direct manipulation of formal objects, this paper introduces a computational toy as a means for teaching knowledge about composition and geometry to students of architecture. The bottom-up approach is employed in the manipulation of the toy. The toy aims at recovering and nourishing the students’ creative spirit and enriching their vocabulary of forms and spaces.
