Reflexive Design presents an integrative approach, both in theory and in practice, to the emergence and interpretation of design and research in architecture. The formative role of research-based design strategies, with regard to architectural developments from modernity to the present day, has not yet been fully recognized. At the same time, in recent years increasing importance has been accorded to discourses about design theory. At the interface of these two contexts, the contributions in the book portray the wide spectrum of creative and cultural aspects of reflexivity and reflexive design processes, as well as the potential opened up by different methods of creation and by the unexpected connections between theoretical knowledge and project ideas in architecture.
