Design process, Information, Knowledge, information processing mediums


 In the information age, easy information does not allow systematic processing of the data to generate knowledge. The paper is concerned with issue as how to prepare future designers to practice knowledgeably in rapidly transforming professional world. Heightened information sources at fingertips without its authenticity being one of the serious threats. There could be various methods to help students and young minds to gain knowledge through processing information, which can be used to deal with design issues in better ways. The paper explores different methods of processing information, which when brought into practice or routine by a student, helps to build their knowledge base. Further, it demonstrates how similar practices were carried out in second year architectural design studio at the institute.
