ABSTRACT: Design and build pedagogic approach in architectural education allows for a an intensive workshop variety that according to students offers great perceived learning value in a short time. This paper discusses how this framework can be used, the notable omissions that follow from this model and the restrictions this puts on a project. While prototypes and simple temporary structures can be made in a short time span, making permanent, functional structures in the same time frame has not yet been explored enough in architectural education. Based on design and build workshops during 2010-2015 with masters level students, all resulting in built structures in 7-14 days, observation and student feedback, a set of guidelines for further devel- opment is proposed.
