Design education in architecture and allied disciplines is the cornerstone of design professions that contribute to shaping the built environment of the future. In this book, design education is dealt with as a paradigm whose evolutionary processes, underpinning theories, contents, methods, tools, are questioned and critically examined. It features a comprehensive discussion on design education with a focus on the design studio as the backbone of that education and the main forum for creative exploration and interaction, and for knowledge acquisition, assimilation, and reproduction. Through international and regional surveys, the striking qualities of design pedagogy, contemporary professional challenges and the associated sociocultural and environmental needs are identified. Building on twenty-five years of research and explorations into design pedagogy in architecture and urban design, this book authoritatively offers a critical analysis of a continuously evolving profession, its associated societal processes and the way in which design education reacts to their demands. Matters that pertain to traditional pedagogy, its characteristics and the reactions developed against it in the form of pioneering alternative studio teaching practices. Advances in design approaches and methods are debated including critical inquiry, empirical making, process-based learning, and Community Design, Design-Build, and Live Project Studios. Innovative teaching practices in lecture-based and introductory design courses are identified and characterized including inquiry-based, active and experiential learning. These investigations are all interwoven to elucidate a comprehensive understanding of contemporary design education in architecture and allied disciplines. A wide spectrum of teaching approaches and methods is utilized to reveal a theory of a ’trans-critical’ pedagogy that is conceptualized to shape a futuristic thinking about design teaching.

Design is fundamental to our modern world. All human achievements, great and small, owe their being, in no small measure, to the concept of design. Whether it is in social and technological innovations, great human endeavours, building and construction projects or simply the environ and desire of the individual, design has been there. But a question remains: what goes on inside the designer's head? For many decades now researchers, philosophers and academics have pondered this question. In this book Dr. Marisha McAuliffe focuses on the notions of imagining and design to interrogate such a question. In this book McAuliffe's outlines her seminal work, as a design practitioner and academic over many years, to expand our understanding of imagining in the spatial design disciplines of architecture and interior design. This book is compulsive reading for the design professional, the student of design and those who have pondered, what goes on inside the designer's head?

Architecture does not consist of two-dimensional drawings – it is built space. The volume Basics Spatial Design focuses on what underlies the perception and design of space and helps to create a deep understanding of the conscious design of three-dimensional relationships. It presents possibilities for spatial design clearly and in a manner that is easily adaptable for one’s own work. Topics: What is space? How do I perceive space? Design parameters – elements of space Repertoire – using the tools

During the last three decades or so there has been a substantial shift in architectural design education. These changes have manifested in an increased criticism of the traditional design education; attempts to reconsider/rethink the basic assumptions, theories and practices of traditional design education; and calls for major changes in studio culture. The drivers of this change include epistemological, social, and economical forces among which are new knowledge and technological developments; increased use of computers and information technology in design education and practice; pressure on institutions of higher education to reduce space use; and changing student demographics. Forty five authors from all over the world come together to address new discourse in architectural design education. The 45 articles of the book are organized under nine themes: virtual and distributed design education, digital design education, digital visualization and design teaching, reflections on architectural design education, integration of studio with other teaching, theoretical issues in learning and teaching design, creativity & critical thinking, alternative studio/design built studio, and teaching studio.

The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design offers a compelling collection of original essays that seek to examine the shifting role of interior architecture and interior design, and their importance and meaning within the contemporary world. Interior architecture and interior design are disciplines that span a complexity of ideas, ranging from human behaviour and anthropology to history and the technology of the future. Approaches to designing the interior are in a constant state of flux, reflecting and adapting to the changing systems of history, culture and politics. It is this process that allows interior design to be used as evidence for identifying patterns of consumption, gender, identity and social issues. The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design provides a pioneering overview of the ideas and arrangements within the two disciplines that make them such important platforms from which to study the way humans interact with the space around them. Covering a wide range of thought and research, the book enables the reader to investigate fully the changing face of interior architecture and interior design, while offering questions about their future trajectory.

Rethinking Basic Design in Architectural Education provides historical and computational insights into beginning design education for architecture. Inviting the readers to briefly forget what is commonly known as basic design, it delivers the account of two educators, Denman W. Ross and Arthur W. Dow, from the turn of the twentieth century in Northeast America, interpreting key aspects of their methodology for teaching foundations for design and art. This alternate intellectual context for the origins of basic design as a precursor to computational design complements the more haptic, more customized, and more open-source design and fabrication technologies today. Basic design described and illustrated here as a form of low-tech computation offers a setting for the beginning designer to consciously experience what it means to design. Individualized dealings with materials, tools, and analytical techniques foster skills and attitudes relevant to creative and technologically adept designers. The book is a timely contribution to the theory and methods of beginning design education when fast-changing design and production technology demands change in architecture schools’ foundations curricula.

ii is the International Journal of Interior Architecture and Spatial Design. In a global, complex, and networked society, interior architecture and its praxis are experiencing unprecedented change. Theoretical investigations, design research, and alternative explorations blend previously discrete disciplines within an emerging blurred territory. The International Journal of Interior Architecture and Spatial Design investigates this new territory by requesting scholarship, design research, and projects that ask bold questions and propose innovative responses. Founded and stewarded by the Interior Architecture program at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design, and published by the Advanced Spatial Design Research Group and the University of Houston Atrium Press, ii seeks to re-frame the debate and shape the contemporary dialogue of interior architecture and spatial design. ii features transdisciplinary research and collaborations that include, but are not limited to, architecture, environmental design, adaptive reuse, interiors, industrial design, fashion, furniture, film, performance, sociology, cultural studies, and the arts. Contemporary architects and designers manipulate materials into increasingly complex spatial conditions, engaging their inherent behaviors, performative capacities, cultural identities, and modular constraints as generative opportunities. Smooth, rough, porous, or impermeable--the qualitative aspects of materiality expand the parameters of what we understand as surface in the production of interior architecture, environmental design, installations, furniture, fashion, and media. Material Vocabularies, ii journal's fourth volume, features provocative work that speculates on the future of materiality in spatial design. It collects a broad range of investigations leveraging the expanded potential for materials in the conceptualization and production of interiors, spatial design, and light-mobile-architectures. Material Vocabularies highlights historical, theoretical, speculative, and built work promoting an awareness of materials as primary shapers and makers of space. This volume endeavors to reveal hybridized agencies, methodologies, and pedagogies in design education, scholarship, research, and practice revealing a global paradigm shift in the role of materials in the design process. Authors include Craig Babe, Sofia Bennani, Alireza Borhani, Blaine Brownell, Joseph Choma, Joe Colistra, Chris Cottrell, Sarah Deyong, Nerea Feliz, David Fern, Tamie Glass, Peter P. Goche, Frank Jacobus, Negar Kalantar, Ji Young Kim, Chris Knapp, Matina Kousidi, Seung Teak Lee, Zeke Leonard, Mi Jung Lim, Marc Manack, Gregory Marinic, Kevin Moore, Jonathan Nelson, Clay Odom, Andrew Phillip Payne, Natasha Perkins, Emina Petrovic, Lisa Phillips, Julieanna Preston, Deborah Schneiderman, Jason Scroggin, Igor Siddiqui, Alexandra Singer-Beider, Akari Takebayashi, and Jen Wong
