Introduction to the second edition

Paul A. Rodgers, Joyce Yee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This book is a revised and updated version of The Routledge Companion to Design Research that was first published in 2015 (Rodgers and Yee, 2015). In the original version, we were keen to celebrate the plurality of design research and showcase the variety of inclusive, explorative, creative, critical and inquisitive attitudes that prevailed in design research at that time. We wanted to compile a book that promoted rich discussions among all that are curious about what design research might be and what it might do. Many voices mean many different ways of speaking and Ranulph Glanville’s important chapter (reproduced here) reminds us that variety is crucial and we should be careful to guard different ways of thinking, exploring and writing about design, and we should value this variety while following our own design research journeys.
