Research by Design: Symposium and PhD

On November 10 and 11, two Research by Design events will take place in Delft, The Netherlands:
  • Design and the growth of Knowledge is a one-morning symposium where Brenda Laurel, Gillian Crampton-Smith, and Kun-Pyo Lee will look at the ways design generates knowledge which can be used beyond the product at hand and thereby generate wholly new ideas.
    The event is hosted by the Technical University of Delft's Professor Pieter Jan Stappers and is moderated by John Thackara.
    The morning symposium (approximately 09:30 - 12:30) is open for all those involved in (interaction) design, including students, design and research managers, designers and researchers. See:

  • For Inspiration Only is the title of Ianus Keller's PhD Thesis that he will defend the next day, on November 11, also in Delft, 10.30 in the Aula of the TU Delft. The associated website contains snippets, images and movies that all show how designers use visual materials in early phases of a design project. See: For Inspiration only
For those interested in how designers perform research in the early stages of design, I strongly recommend attending these events.
