Design and research in design: some reflections

Branco, Vasco;

Article:

The lack of clarity about what it means to be a designer remains one of the biggest problems facing this professional class in Portugal in the definition of their social affirmation. One of the endogenous problems for design activity itself is the need to construct a discourse which will clarify the ontological contours which correlate with the contemporary state of the trajectory of Design. In this paper I depart from the triangular model proposed by Francisco Providência, to deduce – as I will aim to demonstrate, based on simple geometric reasoning - that any design solution results from the convergence of negotiated responses to the three categories of simultaneous requests that emerge, either from the assumption of the Materialization of an artefact (regardless of materiality), through awareness of Other, or from the imperative of Meaning production.
