Beschreibung

The concept designerly ways of knowing emerged in the late 1970s alongside new approaches in design education. Professor Nigel Cross, a respected design researcher, first articulated this idea in his paper Designerly Ways of Knowing published in 1982. This book is a unique insight into expanding discipline area with important implications for design research, education and practice. This book traces the development of a research interest in articulating and understanding the idea that designers have and use designerly ways of knowing and thinking. The following topics are covered: - nature and nurture of design ability; - creative cognition in design; - natural intelligence of design; - design discipline versus design science; and, - expertise in design. As a timeline of scholarship and research and a resource for understanding how designers think and work, this book will interest researchers, teachers and students of industrial and product design; design practitioners, and design managers. This is a major contribution to the literature of design research, knowledgeable, informed, and - above all - interesting. Ken Friedman, Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Design, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne.
