Space as a resource in creative design practices
Vyas, Dhaval, van der Veer, Gerrit, Heylen, Dirk, & Nijholt, Anton (2009) Space as a resource in creative design practices. Lecture Notes in Computer Science : Human-Computer Interaction – INTERACT 2009, 5727, pp. 169-172.
Based on longitudinal ethnographic fieldwork in two industrial design departments and two design companies, we explore the role of spatial arrangements for supporting creative design practices within different design studios. From our results, we show that designers explicitly make use of the physical space for:
1) communicating and inspiring design ideas;
2) exploring design solutions, and;
3) managing design projects.
We believe that these design practices could bring insightful implications for developing ubiquitous technologies to support the design profession.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
