  1. 1. The science of imagining solutions design becoming conscious of itself through design

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University, Umeå Institute of Design

    Author : Søren Rosenbak; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; design; pataphysics; possibility; imaginaries; imagination; the artificial; critical practice; critical design; speculative design; design fiction; participatory design; smart cities; lies; metadata; surveillance; failures; research through design; constructive design research; practice-based design research; programmatic research; epiphenomenology; quantum poetics; design; design; industrial design; industridesign;

    Abstract : This dissertation addresses a paradox in design: we currently live in a day and age that is fundamentally conditioned by artifice on all scales, and principled by a deep sense of contingency and possibility. In this world, anything could always be something else. READ MORE

  2. 2. Design Space Exploration co-operative creation of proposals for desired interactions with future artefacts

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Bo Westerlund; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Design; Design; Design process; co-operative design; participatory design; prototype; video prototype; attention; industrial design; design space; prop;

    Abstract : This thesis critically reflects on co-operative design workshops that I have conducted. The basic method used in these workshops draws on the participants’ embodied knowing. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards automated conceptual design space exploration

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Jakob Müller; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering Design; Model Abstraction; Function Modelling; Knowledge Based Engineering; Model Based Design; Function-Means Modelling; Geometry Modelling; Design Space Exploration; Product Development; Systems Engineering; Design Automation; Aerospace;

    Abstract : In mature and safety-concerned industries, such as the aerospace industry, product development is often incremental and design solutions are limited to improvements of an existing design. Radical changes to the known product architecture are avoided, for reasons of reliability, lack of technology or lack of design space exploration (DSE) methods. READ MORE

  4. 4. Realtime & Development - modes of knowing design computation in architectural practice

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Frans Magnusson; [2017]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Design Methodology; Architectural Practice; Design Theory; Action Research; Computational Design; Design Computation; Design Systems; Project Workflow Management;

    Abstract : This thesis examines theoretical, methodological and organisational implications of design computation for architectural practice - from an insider perspective. It also proposes a conceptual model for knowing within this practice, in an approach that interrelates theory and actionable knowledge. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Process Approach to Robust Design in Early Engineering Design Phases

    University dissertation from Dept. of Machine Design, Lund Institute of Technology, P.O. Box 118, S-221 00 Lund, Sweden
