12 Scopus citations


A design process is proposed which incorporates both pragmatic and artistic approaches by using the hypothesis model in combined formal and verbal explorations. Requisite changes in the conception of the architectural profession, the architectural product and the conception of design are discussed. One example, an exercise entitled 'Examining preconceptions: ideas, images, assumptions and hypotheses', is also presented.
