  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Existential design the "dark side" of design thinking

    University dissertation from University of Borås

    Author : Anne Britt Torkildsby; Högskolan i Borås.; [2012]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Textil och mode generell ; Textiles and Fashion General ;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to discuss ways to open up the brief in designing for extreme environments, such as intensive care units and remand prison. Focusing on „designials‟ (fundamental forms of design being), the methodology intends to illustrate that things; objects may directly impinge on certain „existentials‟ (fundamental forms of human being).

  3. 3. Existential design revisiting the "dark side" of design thinking

    University dissertation from University of Borås

    Author : Anne Britt Torkildsby; Högskolan i Borås.; [2014]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Textiles and fashion; Textil och mode generell ; Textiles and Fashion General ;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to discuss ways of opening up the design brief when designing for extreme environments such as intensive care units and remand prisons. Focusing on “designials” (fundamental forms of design being), the methodology intends to illustrate the fact that objects may directly impinge upon certain “existentials” (fundamental forms of human being).

  4. 4. Thinking beyond the Cure a constructive design research investigation into the patient experience of radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Tara Mullaney; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; constructive design research; patient experience of radiotherapy; actor networks; design experiments; composite methodology; mixed-methods; prototyping; design research; research through design;

    Abstract : This constructive design research dissertation aims to understand how design can be used as part of a composite research approach to generate knowledge about how complex phenomena are composed through their interactions and relationships with various actors, both human and non-human. It has done this by investigating a single phenomenon, the patient experience of radiotherapy. 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

    Author : Peder Andersson; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; design principles; error transmission; design methodology; product development; design for quality; mechanical engineering; design process; conceptual design; Robust design; system design; parameter design; Taguchi; Mechanical engineering; hydraulics; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; Maskinteknik; hydraulik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik;

    Abstract : The activity of robust design of mechanical products and how it can be accomplished in pre-prototype design phases, is discussed in this thesis. It is advocated that to be fully efficient and effective optimization of product robustness should commence already in the conceptual design phase. READ MORE
