Publisher's description: Design research is multi-faceted and undergoing constant change. This book investigates the status quo of things and outlines the elementary issues faced by researchers. Sixteen international authors address four different aspects in their personal statements: Are there differences between design practice and the practice of design research? What alliances between text and artefact are possible in the search for new knowledge? How does design research translate and transform theories and methods from other disciplines? Is design research moving towards becoming a formal discipline and, if so, would this really be of benefit? This compendium is a survey of a fast-growing research field and, at the same time, provides pointers for personal orientation.
