Development Research of Teaching Materials for Design Training
– Development of Teaching Materials for Molding三橋幸次
- Design training is made up of learning of the Design
technology and fostering of design mind.
The design technology consists of conceptual operation
by words and formative operation. These
operations are greatly influenced by design mind.
Design mind aims at discovering new concepts
based on deep insight into humanity and at creating
I propose to produce more interesting teaching
materials for molding that will make molding practices，
w hich will detonate design mind.
This proposal involves ” molding of lines ” using
bars and rubber strings and “membrane structures”
that use expanding and contracting materials. The
former allows experiencing the grace of forms，w h ich
vary in accordance with structures of lines. The lat-
ter enables pursuing the grace of molding by mem-
brane structures that expand and contract. I have
no doubt that，i n design training，f eeling and pur-
suing of grace in molding，i n which structures are
dominant，wi ll be useful training for designers who
merge technology and art.
