Positions and Perspectives

Ed. by Grand, Simon / Jonas, Wolfgang

Series:Board of International Research in Design

    • The “intellectual world map” of research on and through design – a reading adventure!
    • Required reading for anyone wishing to tackle design questions in a thoughtful and serious way
    • Another volume in the celebrated BIRD series

    Aims and Scope

    An authoritative and scientifically based collection of 18 international texts since 1960 that mirrors and analyses the principal developmental phases of design research and scientific research.
    The importance of the focus on pivotal texts for the design research cannot be overstated. However, while certain charismatic names come up in the discussion, the community has thus far lacked a handbook that is straightforward and accessible. Grand and Jonas have now filled this gap. Compiled on the basis of a deep and extensive knowledge of the field, their essays situate and elucidate these exciting texts and aid readers in understanding them.
