This work in design methodology is authored by the founder of the design methods movement. This new edition includes topics such as new methods, exploring the possible, human scale and designing without design. Jones first evaluates traditional methods such as design drawing, and reveals their inadequacy in the face of the complexity of demands on design. He then suggests 35 methods - including information gathering and goal definition - that move the focus beyond the product to the thought that precedes it.;This book should be of interest to architects and designers.
