Design plus Research

Design Plus Research
Growing a knowledge
International symposium on the dimensions of industrial design research
May 18-20, 2000
Politecnico di Milano, Italy

A context
- What is the nature and purpose of industrial design research?
- Is industrial design research distinguished from other fields of research?
- What can this research achieve?
- What methods and resources does it involve?
- How can design research generate new knowledge and skills?
- What is the relationship of industrial design research to design practice?
- Which are the academic or professional profiles for an industrial design researcher?


(i) Research cultures

The critical reflection on the state of art:
the dimension of the historical research in design,
the dimension of the critical and theoretical reflection,
the dimension of the empirical/experimental research.

The projection on crucial questions:
generalisms and specialisms,
industrial design as a field of enquiry,
industrial design research as the condition for disciplinary knowledge,
design discipline versus design science.

(ii) Research models and practice

Search: the uncodified practices of research.
Research: models of structured research.

(iii) Research perspectives

Perspectives on the nature of design research:
on design as a context of interdisciplinary convergence,
on design as a driving force, on design as a specialistic knowledge.

Perspectives on the practice of design research:
on design as a collaborative practice,
on design as a learning-by-interacting,
on design as a specialistic practice.

The New Design Source Book
Author(s): Sparke, Penny; Hodges, Felice; Coad, Emma Dent;
Stone, Anne; Aldersey-Williams, Hugh
ISBN: 1577150163
Format: Hardcover
Pub. Date: 1/1/1997
Publisher(s): Book Sales
Synopsis: "The Design Source Book" has been widely used in university
design courses for many years. This new, updated volume begins with
the 1850's Arts and Crafts movement and includes today's use of
computer design techniques. The best of architecture, automobiles, furniture,
and fashion are pictured in a movement-by-movement, country-by-country,
full-color survey. A marvel of design itself, the book pictures and explains
