Abstract

A new design approach is proposed, which places the iterative nature of design at the heart of its structure. Design is modelled as a cyclical process, in which solution refinement is driven by information gathering and evaluation activities. This is intended to focus the attention of the designer on the quality and extent of the information that the design is derived from, as well as on the quality of the solution as it emerges. The application of this method, and the insight gained from it, is described using a case study example. A method of recording and then mapping the relationships between the key activities within this case study is then presented. This mapping allows a design activity, and the solutions emerging from it, to be analysed in the context of the understanding from which these solutions originated.
