Overview

Case studies are used extensively as teaching tools at schools of law, medicine, and business administration, and this reference argues that architectural training should also include more reading and writing of case studies. Noting that scientific concepts and questions of design are the first priority in architecture, the discussion recommends adding case studies to the curriculum as a practical—rather than theoretical—tool for documenting complicated building projects, finding solutions to technical problems, and expanding a firm's expertise.

This book offers the necessary means for an improved understanding of individually used design methodologies in both academic and professional environments. Based on the axioms of pragmatic thinking it develops a general design theory, a theoretical framework and practical instrumentation to establish a knowledge base for the discipline of architecture.
The author extensively analyses the nature of the design process and the differences between science and art. As such it offers an integrated and comprehensive perspective to understand design activity both from an epistemological and practical standpoint.
Within this theoretical framework, the author explains how case study research is a primordial means to establish such a knowledge base and develops a practical method to do so.
This book is an essential text and provocative guide for educators, students and practitioners, offering the opportunity to reflect on the impact and motivations of design decision-making that will ultimately lead to more responsive design solutions.
