The essential difference between these two strategies is that while the scientists focused their attention on discovering the rule, the architects were obsessed with achieving the desired result.

He felt the design process that Cross argues for waus science in a tight corner. Design Issues17 3 pp. It explores the following topics: I think what Cross was trying to do is to explain his own perspective and make the case for design by comparing it to science.


The underlying axiom of this discipline is that there are forms of knowledge peculiar to the awareness and ability of a designer, independent of the professional domain of design practice. An Example of a Creative Leap. The Discipline of Design. Design Ability is Possessed by Everyone.

Designerly ways of knowing: This discipline seeks to develop domain-independent approaches to theory and research in design. He has been a member of the academic staff of the pioneering, multi-media Open University sincewhere he has been responsible for, or instrumental in, a wide range of distance education courses in design and technology. Can a Machine Design? The phenomena of study in each culture is In the science: The paper then develops the view of ‘design as a discipline’, based upon a science of design.
