Fundamentals of Design

The “design fundamentals” form the basis for learning and play a role in the common teaching of the fundamentals of design above and beyond the teaching of Spatial Strategies. What is decisive here is the teaching of fundamentals both in the syntactic and sematic fields of design. The starting point is the structural characteristics of materials and the assembly of form elements. Students work on the processes of the fundamentals of design and reflect on space, form, colour and light using experimental, building-block exercises and concrete projects in the forms of realisation: drawing, colour design, sculpture, photography, surface- and space-producing collage and montage techniques.
