summary 'Design Dialogues: one' was the first in an occasional series of discussion meetings on design theory sponsored by the Design Research Society. The objective of the meeting was to explore the reasons for the apparent lack of progress in design research over the last decade and in particular whether the search for an atemporal, acultural, domain independent theory of design is a reasonable or realistic goal. The meeting was held on the 17th of May at the Department of Computer Science, University College London and attracted more than 40 participants from a wide variety of disciplines including the arts, architecture, computer science, engineering and business studies.In an attempt to continue the debate in the wider design research community, we have produced the following summary of the presentations and discussion period together with some concluding remarks. While we have made every effort ensure that summaries of the speakers presentations and the discussion are accurate, readers should be aware that they are based on notes taken during the meeting itself and consequently reflect a particular interpretation of the proceedings. However, for those who wish to follow up the ideas presented by the speakers in more detail, we have included a short list of references to relevant work at the end of this meeting summary.
