Abstract

In the past couple of decades we have seen a significant shift in focus within the field of design research. It is a shift from the aim of creating a "design science" to that of creating a "design discipline". The focus is now on understanding the design process through an understanding of design cognition, or the "designerly" ways of knowing and thinking.
