This paper by Sebastian Białkowski and Anetta Kępczyńska-Walczak discusses teaching parametric design as a supportive method of introducing design logic. Two case studies have been described, analysed and concluded. The first case study focuses on a workshop based design of a parametric pavilion, which resulted of building 1:1 scale object.
The second case study concentrates on the academic compulsory course providing parametric design knowledge based on a particular topic imposed by tutors. In both cases the main purpose was to get students being accustomed to a different way of thinking, to open their minds to new approaches to design process and to demonstrate a connection between programming skills and imagination capabilities.
Each of the cases returned valuable guidelines for design studio pedagogy which has also been revealed in this paper.
