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

    Author : Søren Rosenbak; Johan Redström; Carl DiSalvo; Andrew Morrisson; Umeå universitet; []
    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. Designing the Edge : An Inquiry into the Psychospatial Nature of Meaning in the Architecture of the Urban Waterfront

    Author : Konstantinos Ioannidis; Katja Grillner; Lars-Henrik Ståhl; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Urban design and theory; spatial psychology; spatial meaning; compositional strategies; formulative logic; waterfront design and spatial organization; psychospatial reading; transformational relations; design of the edge; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Abstract : The initial goal of this effort is to develop a discussion on urban design process and thinking that acknowledges the needs of places with meaning in the design of the urban waterfront. The thesis addresses the fact that the problematic of the coastal formulation is intricate, comprising not only aspects related to the spatial organization and design of its domain but also shared properties originated by the presence and movement of the perceiving subject in the area.

  3. 3. Perceived Quality of Cars. A Novel Framework and Evaluation Methodology

    Author : Kostas Stylidis; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; luxury; knowledge management; engineering; premium; design; engineering; automotive; product quality; ; product development; aesthetics; perceived quality;

    Abstract : The supremacy of the automotive manufacturers today is no longer driven by them achieving a superior manufacturing quality but increasingly depends on the customer’s quality perception. Average car consumers see a car’s quality as a fancy mixture of design, aesthetics, their own previous experiences and performance characteristics of the vehicle, unlike a combination of mechanical parts, software pieces, advanced materials, cutting-edge manufacturing processes, with technical knowledge, skills and high production volumes – all ingredients involved in the modern car creation.

    Abstract : For manufacturing companies active on the global market, high-performance production systems that contribute to the growth and competitiveness of the company are essential. Among a wide range of industries it is increasingly acknowledged that superior production system capabilities are crucial for competitive success. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design and Evaluation of Software Architecture

    Author : PerOlof Bengtsson; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Software architecture; design;

    Abstract : The challenge in software development is to develop software with the right quality levels. The main problem is not to know if a project is technically feasible concerning functionality, but if a solution exists that meet the software quality requirements. READ MORE
