Beyond the formal/concrete axis: A study of individual difference in approach to design practice
(PhD thesis: University of Glasgow / Glasgow School of Art)
Below is my view of why you might be interested in it, the official abstract, and a complete copy of the thesis to download. First, something about the author.
The author, also
known as Midge, formerly worked for the Digital Design Studio of the
Glasgow School of Art.
She may be contacted at: email midge.mclundie AT googlemail.com |
She is also a published poet: "Preparation" p.121 in A.Bissett & C.MacDougall (2011) (eds.) The flight of the turtle: New Writing Scotland 29 (Assoc. for Scottish Literary Studies)
Cycling blog (Lands End to John O'Groats.)
If you wish to download only parts of the thesis then the first of the six chunks, which is by far the smallest, includes chapter summaries which may be helpful in deciding which parts you want.
