FRIEDMAN, K., 2000. Creating design knowledge: from research into practice. IDATER 2000 Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
This paper considers how we create design knowledge. It examines the ways that research contributes to design knowledge in theory and in practice.
The paper will ask seven important questions:
What is the nature of design?
How does the nature of design involve knowledge of certain kinds?
What are the sources of knowledge?
How does research function as a source of knowledge?
How does research relate to other sources of knowledge?
How do we create design knowledge through research?
How does new knowledge move from research into practice?
The paper will outline answers to these questions. It will also provide information and resources for those who want to explore further.
