The study follows the interpretative principles of Symbolic Interactionism and utilizes the Grounded Theory methodology. The first goal is to better understand the culture of architecture students and, particularly, the fascinating everyday life in the design studio. The second goal is to better understand architecture students as users of school buildings. The third goal is to explore the opportunities offered by Grounded Theory for the study of user culture and needs in regard to facility programming.
