The purpose of the project we describe was to motivate students to study mathematics within an architecture course, tie them to the course, and develop their creative and critical thinking. To achieve these goals, we designed some interdisciplinary activities that involved the subjects of History of Contemporary Architecture and Architecture Design Studio. We present the project, showing examples of work done by students, and report some remark and data on their involvement and enjoyment, based on field notes and students remarks.

Abstract

The purpose of the project we describe was to motivate students to study mathematics within an architecture course, tie them to the course, and develop their creative and critical thinking. To achieve these goals, we designed some interdisciplinary activities that involved the subjects of History of Contemporary Architecture and Architecture Design Studio. We present the project, showing examples of work done by students, and report some remark and data on their involvement and enjoyment, based on field notes and students remarks.
