Design as a Collaborative Process A Systematic and Constructive Model for Developing Play Material for Blind Visually Impaired Preschool Children

2002-05-14
This paper discusses a design process lived through, during the application of a model derived from design methodology and devised towards attaining a particular task. The task was: Designing a play system to contribute to the pre-school blind child’s development of object permanence, sense of self, and spatial concepts. The model employed was based on a systematic and constructive framework towards ensuring consciously made decisions. The paper also discusses the field-testing in play situations of the system that was the outcome of this model. The model was illustrative of the fact that, design, a creative act in itself, is simultaneously a collaborative process involving the methods, strategies and knowledge of interdisciplinary network.

Analysing design processes: a study on graduation projects of industrial design students
Acar, Gün; Hasdoğan, Gülay Fatma; Department of Industrial Design (2004)
This study analyses students̕ design processes within a graduation project that is devised as to approximate a real-life design task. It comprises a literature search on developments in design methodology, and two field studies, a participant observation study followed by long interviews with a selection of the observation sample. Through the literature search, a framework representing the nature of the design activity is brought together on the basis of three studies in descriptive design methodology. Toge...
Experience reflection modelling as a generative research method in an educational case for sustainable product design
Turhan, Senem; Doğan, Çağla (2014-01-01)
A generative research method, namely Experience Reflection Modelling (ERM), has been developed aimed at helping students explore and reflect upon design considerations for sustainability in the idea generation phase of a design process. ERM has been integrated into a product design for sustainability project as part of the design education in the Department of Industrial Design at Middle East Technical University. This paper begins by providing an overview of the generative research approach, explaining its...
Parametric Urban Design Thinking: Shared Patterns in Design by Algorithm and Design by Drawing
Çalışkan, Olgu; Ongun, Gokhan (2021-12-01)
The paper suggests a focused examination of the processes of drafting-based design and parametric design in urbanism. It discusses how spatial design's settled cognition would differ by using algorithmic systems through the altered relationships between the basic operations in design. To reveal the commonalities and distinctions between the two design methods, the authors present the detailed documentation of the workshop series, which experimented with both techniques within similar design contexts. By the...
Visual Structuring for Generative Design Search Spaces
Abbas, Günsu Merin; Gürsel Dino, İpek (2016-06-17)
With generative design strategies, the act of design, the problem-solving process, and the interaction, understanding and representation of design artefacts have changed. As such strategies entail a large number of possible design solutions, they also expand the design search space immensely. In addition, due to the automated design generation process, the interaction of the designer through the design process has decreased. This research problematizes two major points as (1) the broad design spaces of gene...
