How does one introduce a beginning design student to spatial concepts and spatial ways of seeing? As John Hejduk states the architect begins from the abstract - a world of ideas, of concepts, of aspirations - and gravitates toward built form. Students must first see and critically assess and question this abstract world before they can make the jump toward the real world. They arrive with so many misconceptions about architecture yet have no conceptions about the abstract world.
