|I belive of the necessity to engage deeply and widely in creative techniques that could be used to enhance and improve the teaching methodology in the design studio and the outcomes of the architectural design profession and its pedagogy alike. Also, my interest is to examine how the design process needs to explore both divergent and convergent thinking to maximize the productivity of problem-solving processes. For many years I have been practicing the architecture as profession and I have deep belief that architect must engage to the cultural context of his/her era without losing the conscious connection to tradition. During my practicing architecture and teaching in design studio, one synergy of the design that I found significantly interesting is creativity. Interestingly, the topic of creativity is often not directly engaged with in architectural practice and education; more often the assumption is simply made that it will be present, and also about who might ‘have’ it. My interest in this area stems from the experience of teaching in architectural studio, where the job is in effect to facilitate creativity in architecture students as they develop their skills. Thus, I have deep belief that teaching in architectural design studio would benefit from being more directly concerned with creativity, and how to facilitate it. This is important in order to promote the students’ progress in both their design education and subsequent professional development. Thus, my teaching venture aims to make more explicit and enhance the approaches to creativity in studio teaching.|
