summary The intent of this paper is to examine experimental design methods in the field of architecture and their implementation in academic settings. The projects emerged during design research studio at the institute of digital design techniques at the university of Kassel and collaborative workshops with several institutes. The starting point of the teaching concept was a divergence from the usual methods and ways of thinking, allowing for new, innovative solutions to emergence during the design process. The main point was a development of novel spatial modules in coherence with material and structural considerations. The question of materiality becomes a crucial consideration. The characteristics of different materials used for models development did not just influenced geometrical possibilities but also intensify, explore and organize spatial and structural qualities of the projects.
