title A New Tool for Studio Teaching - Object Based Modeling

summary The scope of this paper is to present Computer Aided Architectural Design (and more particularly the dynamic and incremental modeling characteristics of Object Based Modeling) as a tool to reinforce the teaching of architectural design. Utilized within a method based on a cyclical application of "Concept and Testing", OBM has the possibility to work as an amplifier of design ideas and as a meaningful tool for the advancement of architectural design. Three related experiences support this hypothesis. The role played in concrete designs by an Object Based Modeling environment. Teaching with CAAD and OBM in the realm of documentation and analysis of architecture. Previous applications of the Concept-Testing methodology in design studios. The central sections of the paper focus on the analysis of these experiences, while the last section provides a 15 week, semester based, studio structure that incorporates OBM in the overall calendar and in key assignments. While the scope of this work coincides with the thesis presented at the Acadia '92 conference in Charleston (South Carolina), to focus the argument more clearly content, text and illustrations differ in several parts.
