Theories of Design
Claudia Mareis, director of the ixdm, is currently working on an overview publication on theories of design. Therein, she is outlining design as an interdisciplinary field of research by highlighting pivotal theories of design of the 20th century. Approaches and models are introduced that establish an extended notion of the discipline and emphasize the interface of design with the social sciences, sciences of technology as well as society at large. The book will be released in October by Junius Verlag, a publisher renowned for its introductory publications on various academic subjects.
