Understanding the nature of design ideas and the subsequent approaches, activities and methodologies applied in the realization of these conceptual ideas is critical for the emerging designer. This course examines the work of a number of key architects and interior and industrial designers in order to study their approaches in the context of their individual philosophies, design vocabularies and the parameters within which they worked. Through this study, we will consider and evaluate their diverse methodologies and results.
