title Shape Cognition in Design - Constructing a Cognitive Model of Shapes for Different Design Fields
source CAADRIA ‘98 [Proceedings of The Third Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 4-907662-009] Osaka (Japan) 22-24 April 1998, pp. 347-354
summary The purpose of this paper is to reveal the characteristics of shape cognition of different design fields in the ‘intuitive design’ domain, and to construct a cognitive model of shape cognition for different design fields. The research procedure used in this study consisted of two phases. The first phase was applied to protocol analysis study of three professional designers in architectural design, industrial design and graphic design respectively. In the second phase, one controlled laboratory experiment was designed to reveal the characteristics of designers’ shape perception in different ‘intuitive design’ fields. By these empirical findings, we found that designer’s cognitive processes of shapes would be not alike in different design fields. The results suggest that in different design fields, designer’s shape cognition processes will be different, and in each design field, similar cognitive processes of shape contained different design meanings.
