It is highly significant to train freethinking, free-living and free designing individuals in every field; especially in education, design and architecture environments. It is thought that; to be able to train individuals who can express themselves in intellectual, social and cultural fields and who can think freely and create new products, is only impossible with a well and effective design education. In the research, a sample group of third grade students studying in Architecture and Interior Architecture Department of Faculty of Architecture of Karadeniz Technical University were selected. What was wanted from the students is to think over the given problem, design a composition and transform it into a three-dimensional visual. In the study, outcomes which indicate the existence of concept-oriented different approaches were presented. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
