|Abstract||During the transition from the general architectural training (in the 1st and 2nd years) to the fundamental architectural education (in the 3rd year) students must have capacity to clearly formulate and quickly draw their architectural idea.
It’s necessary to develop architectural fantasy, image mode of thinking, possibility of making an abstract dream an architectural reality. In our opinion all this can be promoted by short tasks offered to students. We set experimental short tasks weekly in the 8th group on the 3rd year of the “Industrial design” chair of the Moscow Institute of Architecture. The task duration was not more than an hour.
The short task set consisted of 10 tasks. Each of they was set to students before or after the main consultation. It was necessary to embody an image and a form in a model with different graphical ways, materials and colors and in the same time construction (firmness, sustainability) and visual characters had to take into account.
The short task examples cited here illustrate their transition from the abstract image tasks (such as “transition”, “limit”, “landscape”) to small object design (“shed”, “pavilion”).
Graphic and modeling methods used in short tasks were partly applied in course projects. The analysis of the results of circannual experiment showed increasing students interest in subject as well as improving semester notes in the end.
