Design in architecture starts by understanding dynamics of a context and by decodingthe knowledge of place where the space will be created. These are then transformedinto spatial concepts and end with spatial formations. Subjective knowledge that isespecially enhanced by the experiences of the architect and scientific knowledgecome together to lead this design process. The aim of this study is to reveal howarchitects from different cultures produce knowledge of space and the ways oftransforming this knowledge into design process. Different architectural reflectionsof this knowledge are illuminated by the design proposals of architecture studentsfrom two different countries. Comparative evaluations focusing on the student worksare considered as an instructive process for architects that make indiscerniblediscernible, vary the possibilities and by this way enhance their own architecturalknowledge.Keywords: Architectural design, knowledge of space, space making, design education.
