Description

Basic to the act of designing is the capability to conjecture, to invent, to discover and develop strategies in form-making, in order not only to create solutions but also to force critical questions.

Critical understanding is derived from reference to existing works, cases or discourses and a readiness to theorise and historicise the subject both as the seed for conjecture and as evaluation and critique of practice. The starting point for this sequential elaboration and refutation of hypothetical compositions in search of a new and balanced whole is the Vitruvian coherence of thought and action.

In this book, the accent is on design research and research by design-- two core activities of the Faculty of Architecture at Delft University of Technology.
