Basic design education is the first step of architectural design education. Basic design principles based on Gestalt psychology and Bauhaus school are the body of rules which are necessary to establish the compositional organization. Students are not able define the principles establishing the geometrical correlation. At this stage, teachers are expected to guide their students. For that purpose, user-participated "artificial intelligence" software is written solving the previously defined problems. Algorithms to produce two or three dimensional compositions with 3D Max Script are developed. As a result, during the basic design education, algorithmic rules set is regarded as beneficial materials for CAD softwares set in according to basic design principles, producing a new design, creating alternatives and visualization.
