visión de conjunto:Críticas 'An extremely readable book due in part to the soundbite-sized chapters'Architects Journal 19.01.06 There is no set path to beautiful design and as designers we are always moving forward looking for the next problem to solve. Lawson reminds us however that taking the time to engage the issues comprehensively leads to more well-rounded and ultimately better finished products. As such developing a solid set of foundation skills and methods are of the utmost importance permeating into other work and yielding stronger results. ― Jeremy Senko Spacing Magazine Reviews of previous editions:'It has a great virtue of being thorough and readable... excellent bibliography.'Built Environment'This book makes a valuable if individualistic contribution to the literature of design theory.'Science and Technology Press'The author succeeds in demystifying his subject for the lay reader.'New Scientist'The chapters are well written in a readable form and packed full of data undeniably valuable to students.'ASI Journal'Its success is well deserved because it is clearly written the arguments are logically presented and the design process is indeed demystified.'Architectural Science Review Reseña del editor How Designers Think is based on Bryan Lawson's many observations of designers at work interviews with designers and their clients and collaborators. This extended work is the culmination of forty years' research and shows the belief that we all can and do design and that we can learn to design better. The creative mind continues to have the power to surprise and this book aims to nurture and extend this creativity. Neither the earlier editions nor this book are intended as authoritative prescriptions of how designers should think but provide helpful advice on how to develop an understanding of design.
In this fourth edition Bryan Lawson continues to try and understand how designers think to explore how they might be better educated and to develop techniques to assist them in their task. Some chapters have been revised and three completely new chapters added. The book is now intended to be read in conjunction with What Designers Know which is a companion volume. Some of the ideas previously discussed in the third edition of How Designers Think are now explored more thoroughly in What Designers Know. For the first time this fourth edition works towards a model of designing and the skills that collectively constitute the design process. Biografía del autor Bryan Lawson is a Professor of Architecture at the University of Sheffield. He is however both an architect and a psychologist which has enabled him to study the nature of the design process.
