People have to live indoors. Whilst designing the livable interiors, providing suitable functions for these places is gaining importance. In order to design interiors which can give good service, it is necessary to have well-educated interior architects. At this point, the importance of education is an undeniable fact. One of the most important developments, especially in recent years, was the introduction of computers in the design process and the emergence of the concept of computer aided design. This study focuses on the process of finding a solution composed of three-dimensional sketches and modelling. It involved the students who had completed 2 years of education and had started only the 3rd class. The solution phase analyzes the methods used for two-dimensional hand drawing and computer drawing compared with and three-dimensional narrative. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
