Drawn words are better recalled than written! Furthermore, pictures are better remembered than items studied as words even when test items are presented as words, clearly, and evidently presented in many conducted research tests. The picture superiority effect showed a clear developmental trend. Designing commercial buildings poses urban and compositional challenges, especially when the production process implies the use of various technological equipment that can pollute the environment. In general, Kosovo's industrial development was based on the exploitation of raw materials and their processing to a certain degree, but not to a satisfactory degree of processing and finalization. The diversity of design of complex structures must always be in line with the requirements of technological processes, trends, economic development, environmental protection, and sustainable human development. The study presented in this paper investigated the visual design guidelines for complex structures, focusing on architectural design issues, aimed primary for education purposes. The research method consists of empirical observation through the Prishtina region zone, with an accent to the urban shapes, design functionality, visual perception, and compositional harmony as a contemporary reflection to the design system models. Furthermore, the conceptual instructions from this research, show the need and necessity of adopting the visual design guidelines as the superiority teaching method.
