is the Model for Architectural Design Education (MADE)?
MADE is a didactically organized teaching model for
the methodical and systematic design of structures.
The individual steps of the teaching model which lead to the design
are shown in the MADE
Process Plan .
Starting with a design task (referred to as the "project task"),
the MADE Process Plan encompasses all the activities
with which the skills required for the specification, preparation,
implementation and production of a design are acquired.
It must however be emphasized that a project task in its totality
cannot be solved by objective, formalizable means alone,
for it also requires intuition, and intuition cannot be learned.
In consequence, MADE is to be understood as one of
the "tools of the trade", with which intuition can (and
should) be properly crafted.
was MADE developed?
MADE was developed for university lecturers of architecture
to facilitate planned teaching, and for students to facilitate the
planned and systematic designing of buildings.
MADE can also be employed in subjects such as Industrial
Design, Civil Engineering and Building Construction as well as in
the vocational training of secondary school teachers for subjects
such as Technology, Handicraft Work or Introduction to Work.
