Design as Research or Design Research?


Jeng-Neng Fan ( 范振能 ) is an industrial designer searching for relationships among design materials, space, consumers, and designed products. His re-search interests target at innovative materials in design, digital design and manufacturing, designed products and variations, and consumer trends & design innovation.


Debates and myths have been discussed in the design education at graduate level, especially in Taiwan. Should it be 'design as research' or 'design research'? As a designer in academia, he is searching for the possible answer and pedagogy that a design education at graduate level should have, and trying to fill the gap between praxis and design research.
