About this title

Synopsis:

Are Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) helpful or detrimental to the process of design? According to Aristotle, the imagination is a mental power that assists logical, sound judgments. Design, therefore, incorporates both reason and imagination.

Challenging ICT Applications in Architecture, Engineering, and Industrial Design Education posts imagination as the central feature of design. It questions the common assumption that ICTs are not only useful but also valuable for the creation of the visual designs that reside at the core of architecture, engineering design, and industrial design. For readers who believe this assumption is right, this book offers an alternative perspective.

Review:

How does the constantly developing array of information and communication technologies fit into the life of education in design and in the practice of architects and engineers, asks architecture educator Wang. He provides answers, or at least thoughts, both for designers and for educators. His topics include articulating design education, pedagogy and curriculum in architecture and engineering, reviewing engineering and introducing industrial designers, complexity theory revisited, and design and virtual reality. --Annotation ©2012 Book News Inc.
