Designerly Ways of Knowing -- The Nature and Nurture of Design Ability -- Natural and Artificial Intelligence in Design -- Creative Cognition in Design I: The Creative Leap -- Creative Cognition in Design II: Creative Strategies -- Understanding Design Cognition -- Design as a Discipline
The concept - designerly ways of knowing - emerged in the late 1970s alongside new approaches in design education. Professor Nigel Cross, a respected design researcher, first articulated this idea in his paper 'Designerly Ways of Knowing' published in 1982. This book is a unique insight into expanding discipline area with important implications for design research, education and practice. This book traces the development of a research interest in articulating and understanding the idea that designers have and use 'designerly' ways of knowing and thinking. The following topics are covered: nature and nurture of design ability; creative cognition in design; natural intelligence of design; design discipline versus design science; and, expertise in design. As a timeline of scholarship and research and a resource for understanding how designers think and work, this book will interest researchers, teachers and students of industrial and product design; design practitioners, and design managers
