Learning through Iteration

Learn through iteration

In the studio, students develop projects not simply by moving from one step to another but also by repeating some steps, rethinking and refining their work over time.  

“In the architecture studio, for example, the design process strives for successive, more technically accurate developed, aesthetically superior refined proposals of previous iterations. New proposals are informed by the critique and feedback of prior work; iterations are followed by new reworked and refined propositions. As iterations proceed, students must access a broader range of resources and content as the number of iterations increase.” Carol B. Brandt, et al, “A theoretical framework for the studio as a learning environment”
