It is thought that people don't interrogate their environment in these age. In this rapid life, interrogate is seen a waste of time. As a result of this an insensitive generation continues their entity who settles with finished, rapid, inflexible information and doesn't overrate their own thouhts, their environments'. Even if people don't want to continue their life according to these standarts, the order drifts them to this. But one of the way of for to internalize or understand something literally is to interrogate them. Interrogate something requires re-thinking. Also re-thinking is to evaulate something with making transition between the environment of it has been before and the environment of now it has. These transitions provide to see different directions of both environments and each time new different approach can be exposed. It can be effective and provide to internalize and understand the problems with approaching the problems according into this context. The problem of arhitectural education become different situations with process. Education is in a complexity about how it should be, it doesn't decide a literally strategy. In this context it is aimed that rethinking basic design course which is came into being with education strategy of Bauhaus and interrogating the education problem with making transitions between the way of thinking Bauhaus's environment and today. When these transitions are made, question process which is started with "what is architecture" will be discussed with some concepts. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
