Studio approaches change over time due to changes in the areas and concepts associated with design studio. What is the direction of this change and which areas came to the forefront? The theoretic base of this article gives a short history of design in different fields and also changes in the understanding and the approaches in design studio throughout history. In this article, first we define basic approaches realized in the last century. Then, we seek to investigate the concepts and topics around design studio term analyzing all articles that mentioned “design studio” and “design education” in the title and keywords in the last decade. For this purpose, we listed around 500 words and concepts in 262 SCOPUS indexed journal articles published between 2009-2019 and found the most repetitive words. We determined their proportions within the total and investigated their connections and networks. By using network analysis, we tried to construct focus areas, relations and connections between words terms and concepts related to the recent approaches in the design studio field. The terms and concepts also ranked according to years-based changes. We found that some concepts are becoming more popular or less popular in yearly based ranking of terms and concepts. The research findings of the article show that design studio education had trends on being more locally identical, more systematic, interdisciplinary, process oriented.
