Synergy in the design process - contemporary tools used in the recording and implementation of the design idea

Katarzyna Słuchocka, Borys Siewczyński, Jan Szot



The article presents the problem of using manual graphic recording and multimedia recording in the process of perception of architectural spaces, with the aim of searching for tools that can optimize the design processes of architecture and urbanism. The material refers to the research conducted by comparative analysis, individual cases (case study) using the heuristic method. Selected sets of graphic, drawing and painting interpretations, as well as records in the nature of film tracks, were analyzed in an effort to assess the merit of the method used in determining the character of a given space and the degree of its recognition. The simultaneous use of both tools contributed to broadening the research field and deepening the diagnosis of the spaces recognized by the students. The research undertaken showed the advisability of using a combined cognitive method, based on the mutual transfer of drawing and multimedia techniques, which can be an effective tool for optimization in creative and design work. The dualistic way of approaching the issue gave confirmation that the synergy of action can result in an expanded analysis of space, the development of imagination and the ability to use new means of expression, consequently forming interesting plastic and multimedia articulations.
