Why is making important for the culture of design?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A select review of making in design in an epistemological framework presents two dominant approaches and a less practiced third approach. Whereas the first two value the control and accuracy in the processing of information, the third values the uncertainties in the processing of materials. Whereas the first two rely on final product and prior knowledge, the third relies on the processes of formation and flows of matter, and thus is key to a dynamic and sustainable model for design.
