Applied Design Research: A Mosaic of 22 Examples, Experiences and Interpretations Focussing on Bridging the Gap between Practice and Academics
Design and research are two fields of knowledge that each has its traditions, methods, standards, and practices. These two worlds are quite separate that researchers investigate what exists and designers design what could be. This book builds a bridge by integrating design and research, to develop a new field of knowledge.
Applied Design Research: A Mosaic of 22 Examples, Experiences and Interpretations Focussing on Bridging the Gap Between Practice and Academics contains twenty-two inspiring reflections that demonstrate how applied design research offers an inspiring and effective approach to combining the unique qualities of research (aimed at studying the present) and design (aimed at developing the future). The book shows that the transdisciplinary approach is applicable in a multitude of sectors, ranging from healthcare, urban planning, circular economy, and the food industry. Arranged in five parts, the book is a mosaic of examples, experiences, and interpretations, giving different illustrative examples and describing different methods which makeup the characteristic of a mosaic in that each piece contributes to the whole, but none of the pieces contains all the information. Together they offer an excellent picture of applied design research, how it is implemented and what the reader can expect from it.
This book with its many examples, experiences, and interpretations can enthuse (beginning) researchers with the inspiring applied design research approach. It is hoped that more experienced design researchers will recognize themselves in the experiences described in the book and feel inspired by them.
