Knowledge-based Design: Developing Urban & Regional Design Into a Science
In Knowledge-based Design it is argued that urban and regional design can and should be considered a potential practical science. 'Should be' as the built environment imposes long time conditions on societal processes, and 'can be' provided a user-oriented design approach is chosen. This conclusion is reached after exploring the position of urban design in the field of science, concentrating on practical sciences. Focusing not on the uniqueness of designs but on what they have in common by dissociating the object of design from the specific context, design becomes a research method, producing organizational principles and theoretical models.
