summary Design studio is the core of architectural education. An essential part of designing is using information and knowledge obtained from non-studio courses. However, as the complexity of buildings increases, the amount of this information increases and there is a danger that essential design information may be ruined and overlooked because of time and place constraints. As a means to bridge the gap between non-studio courses and design studios, some architectural educators suggest that design studios should bring knowledge to students in the process of designing so that they can apply this knowledge to their design. Most architectural studios, however, do not do enough to bring knowledge systematically into design projects when appropriate. Design projects generate need for additional knowledge about a number of topics, but too few studios systematically make knowledge available. Design studios should consider ways in which knowledge for design projects is integrally made available at the appropriate time. This paper describes a model for the delivery of design studio information which can be integral with any design projects. The model is demonstrated by a computer-assisted instruction (CAI) system designed and placed on the Web to introduce basic structural concepts and to teach an in-depth concept of spatial composition in a design studio and reports on its development, implementation, and testing. The system relies on many issues, such as access to relevant information, links between lessons for different subjects, representation of various design concepts, effective instructional methods for learning concepts, etc., which might be critical elements of designing an information communication system for design studio instruction. This paper tests the effectiveness of the system based on the results from responses of design studio students and observations of the researcher and the studio instructor, and concludes with the information that we hope will be useful in developing CAI materials for reflecting and acquiring information on a number of different subjects that have relevance to architectural design.
