  • UK/CoD : General Info : Dean’s Message
    firms even those competing solely on the basis of cost to design better buildings and deliver them more efficiently But in such a fiercely competitive global marketplace efficiency alone will not be enough to guarantee market viability The real differentiator will instead be design One of the unexpected consequences of the economic downturn has been that the debate over the value of architecture and design is now focused less on style and the exquisite designed object and more on the economic and societal value added by design And that is because almost everyone now acknowledges that we need new design values as much as perhaps more than we need new designs The most promising development in this regard and one that affects architecture and design practice as well as design education is the growing recognition that design is not only a product a table building plan or landscape but is also a creative process and a powerful engine of innovation Design as we see in examples ranging from Frank Gehry s Bilbao Guggenheim Museum in Spain to the Apple IPod has become an important feature of our increasingly innovation driven economy But it is not only the design that is important What is perhaps just as important is the value added by what design leaders like David Kelly of IDEO call design thinking a form of design prototyping that follows a classic distinction made by business and innovation guru Peter Drucker between problem solving which answers without questioning the problem given and therefore adds nothing new and innovation which interrogates and reforms the problem given and adds value by creating new knowledge and new products not anticipated in the problem Problem solving shapes the known while innovation coaxes into existence the unknown Design thinking is a thinking by doing in which plausible solutions are prototyped interrogated and redesigned Prototypes which IDEO call the shorthand of innovation are not however variations of a projected final design they are not guesses extrapolated from the designer s perfect idea about what the final design might be but are instead what ifs that the designer uses to drive the innovation process itself The designer uses the prototype to think through as many factors as necessary material cost fabrication etc and adjust the design accordingly Not only are the assumptions of the problem given transformed opening the way for innovations but also with each prototype new design knowledge is generated that can be shared and discussed among teams of designers whose additional input further enhances the innovation process Design thinking is a thinking by doing that helps us begin to see what new values of new design practice and education might look like Cheap fast and adaptable so that hundreds of iterations can be designed sorted and discarded Big bold and dumb so that clients stakeholders even other designers can engage in transparent productive discussion that might lead to better problems and better solutions And finally apposite not perfect so that if the design needs
