Design studies are the environments where individuals receiving design education demonstrate their creativity in the most condensed way while questioning and communicating the theoretical knowledge they have learned through education. In this paper, studio education is discussed in the case of the Second Academic Year Design Studio at the Department of Architecture, Karadeniz Technical University, which is located in the north-east of Turkey in the coastal city of Trabzon. The aim of the study is both to introduce the Second Semester Design Studio and to investigate gains of students from the studio process in the context of the subject. The study also examines how students transfer their knowledge to the students who follow. The contribution of the studio process is also discussed.
