summary 
Geometry and mathematics have always been disciplines related with architecture. As the geometry gets more complex, dealing with it becomes more intuitive. This study focuses on an exercise process, carried out with the third term undergraduate students, that searches complex geometries. The aim of this study is to make the students think over mathematical expressions as a design form and to improve their computational thinking abilities. This study takes the use of mathematics and geometry one step further in the architectural education process, and discusses that forms are not just visual values, and that their mathematical values can be used as parameters in the design process. In this context, complex threedimensional objects that are difficult to model in three dimensions can be modelled and developed with parameters.
