How Designers Think by Bryan Lawson

Book Description

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.

What Designers Know by Bryan Lawson What Designers Know, Paperback (April 2004)

Explores whether design knowledge is special, and attempts to get to the root of where design knowledge comes from. This book focuses on how designers use drawings in communicating their ideas and how they converse with them as their designs develop. It also shows how experienced designers use knowledge differently to novices.

Language of Space by Bryan Lawson Language of Space, Paperback (October 2001)

Provides a systematic overview of the idea of architectural space. This book provides an introduction, and views architectural and urban spaces as psychological, social and partly cultural phenomena. It also promotes easier communication by taking the abstract idea of 'space' and placing it in real terms.
