Reflection on 2.3 Designing for the unknown

I am struck by the similarities between the writings of Hatchuel, A et al who refer to the necessity of integrating C-Space (Concept Space-  the unknown, the concepts that have yet to be confirmed) with K-Space (Knowledge Space- the known, existing knowledge and experience) in the process of design. Melles, G also refers to the necessity of design thinking to include ‘experiential knowledge making’ and ‘collaborative prototyping’, which appear to be a combination of including the ‘knowns’ (Knowledge) and ‘unknowns’ (Concepts) in the design process. The design brief for the Walker school seems to be an excellent example of this combination. Engine Service Design & Walker Technology College.
