In order to maintain its relevance and pertinence throughout history, Design Teaching has been pushed to regularly evaluate its adequacy in the face of cutting-edge technologies and constantly renewed tools. In that respect, the new paradigm of Generative Artificial Intelligence pushes once more the territorial limits of Educational Research and Pedagogy.
In this study, we describe the implementation of Educational Methodologies to teach Design to Architecture Students in a Professional Degree Program in Mexico. This Methodology takes students from the familiarization with Design Fundamentals into the incorporation of internet technologies as a support tool that grants them access to an expanding database of form and geometry configurations. The incorporation of 3D Modeling Digital Tools complements a process that aims to endow students with the capacity to understand and create space from within the manipulation of form and geometry and promotes the burst of new formal configurations within the student´s creative process. We base this process on the notions of Systems Theory and claim Design Teaching is a cohesive cluster of interrelated components. It is under this premise that we also claim that the new possibilities granted by Artificial Intelligence can be seen as another component within this system. Beyond the initial reluctance to incorporate AI to its Design Methodologies, the Design Disciplines should see AI as a tool that generates variations with radical speed, and therefore invaluable in its role as an aid to the Design process but nevertheless, incapable of generating new formal configurations by itself.
