Main Article Content
This article supplements the open conversation regarding the form that contemporary design methods of research should have, and how they can be validated by the academic community. We argue that the repertoire of design research methods and practices need not mimic those from the humanities, social sciences or natural sciences, instead finding their legitimacy from their own practice as a basis and guide for research. We review the epistemological legacy that we manage when enforcing practices, we examine the history of science and contemporary philosophy and we pause to explore the importance of experimentation in the practice of research. We close with a commitment to validate design practice as a way of generating knowledge in action, claiming that design is a way to become sensitive to matter, to the social, to the body, and to concepts.
