It is presented a framework of rule based composition, involving an analogue and a digital part. The analogue part of the system includes the articulation of spatial relations and rules with analogue means, like pencil and paper. The digital part includes their translation into a shape grammar metalanguage and ttheir digital testing. The paper focuses on the features of the analogue part of the system. How rules can become part of the core studio teaching? How rules can be used to perform goal-driven design tasks? And how can analogue methods and digital tools coexist in the design process?
