Abstract

This paper discusses instruction on Nigerian and South African spatial forms presented to a Design studio in a Southwestern US University. The goal was to increase students' ability to synthesize design ideas for different cultural settings using design theories, their utilization of examples from non-Western perspectives as references for discussing design, and their ability to solve design problems in different cultural settings. The author presents these instructional strategies as a pedagogical model for design educators.
