Abstract

Analogy is the name given to the process of receiving knowledge from a learned and an experienced concept and using the acquired knowledge in a new concept. Analogical reasoning is a concept, which is commonly used in design education and problem solving. Analogical reasoning can be used as an help in the process of problem solving. Sustainability is a concept, which can be interpreted differently according to the field of use. The concept of sustainability should be an essential part of design education and combined with its entire curriculum. In the scope of this knowledge, this thesis aims to find out whether the use of analogical reasoning in the sustainable problem solving process improves the overall solution and simplifies the process or not.
