At the early stages of architectural education, it is observed that students have difficulty to produce forms. Students, during the design process, comfortably use basic geometrical elements one by one, however are not able to diversify them by transformation because of the fact that students are not capable enough to transform basic geometrical forms in accordance with arithmetical operations and geometrical transformation. In this study examining the architectural form creation; a three-month case study is conducted with first year students in Department of Architecture through which the software is used. Initially architectural projects of students designed in accordance with traditional methods and it is observed that students are not able to throughly transform the forms. At the second stage, students are expected to develop their projects through sofware transformations. Additionally, a questionaire is also conducted with students in order to define the possitive and negative aspects of forms created with this method. Selection and/or peer review under responsibility of Prof. Dr. Ayse Cakir Ilhan.
