A companion to the growing field of practice-based design research, this volume draws upon international expertise to address the issues involved in establishing, delivering and undertaking postgraduate practice-based research.
Practice-Based Design Research provides a companion to masters and PhD programs in design research through practice. The contributors address a range of models and approaches to practice-based research, consider relationships between industry and academia, researchers and designers, discuss initiatives to support students and faculty during the research process, and explore how students' experiences of undertaking practice-based research has impacted their future design and research practice. The text is illustrated throughout with case study examples by authors who have set up, taught or undertaken practice-based design research, in a range of national and institutional contexts.
About the Author
Laurene Vaughan is Professor of Design and Communication at RMIT University, Australia.
This unique collection offers profound insights, exemplary cases and practical guidance for practice-based design research as it expands worldwide. A major contribution to the field, this book is essential for supervisors, researchers, teachers and students of doctoral education in design. * Ramia Maze, Professor of Design at Aalto University, Finland * Design has an increasingly important role to play in material, social, economic, and technological change and design research needs to change accordingly. This book describes the theory and the practice of practice-based design research and is an exciting and timely contribution to the field. I think it will become an essential reference point not only for future practice-based design researchers, but for all design researchers. * Peter Lloyd, Professor of Design at the University of Brighton and Vice Chair of the Design Research Society, UK * Practice Based Design Research bravely challenges conventional forms doctoral scholarship through the specular agency of the design disciplines. It is an essential resource - both diverse and critical - for reconceptualising the knowledge economy, not just in design but as design. * Stephen Loo, Professor of Architecture at the University of Tasmania, Australia *
