Stimulating Creativity in Building Design Education: Introducing Experts and C-K‘s C-Projectors

  title={Stimulating Creativity in Building Design Education: Introducing Experts and C-K‘s C-Projectors},
  author={Wim Zeiler},
In order to support creative team design in the conceptual building design phase, a design method was developed: integral design. Integral design uses morphological charts, which are made by the individual designers from different disciplines, and which are than transformed into a design team‘s morphological overview. The Concept-Knowledge theory by Hatcheul and Weil was used to focuss on specific integral design process steps and to implement techniques to stimulate creativity within the…

The theoretical basis of the design method on which the education of students and professionals is based is discussed and results presented and these workshops have become part of the permanent educational and professional program of the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects.
The Interplay between Creativity Issues and Design Theories: A New Perspective for Design Management Studies?
In this article, we analyse the relationship between creativity issues and design theory. Although these two notions seem to correspond to different academic fields (psychology, cognitive science and
Teaching innovative design reasoning: How concept–knowledge theory can help overcome fixation effects
PBCL helps students be critical and give due thought to the main issues in innovative design education: FEs, and shows precisely where the FEs appear and how students are able to overcome them.
Design Theory and Collective Creativity: A Theoretical Framework to Evaluate KCP Process
It is shown that the KCP method can address all four dimensions of a collective creativity method and contrasts with classical creativity techniques, insofar as it insists strongly on knowledge sharing and the design reasoning is strongly oriented by the organizers when they propose the C-projectors.
This paper considers the concept of creativity as it relates to design and, more particularly, design education. Underpinned by the observation that there are multiple definitions and theories of
Integral design method in the context of sustainable building design : closing the gap between design theory and practice
The results showed that the ID-method did prove successful in facilitating the inclusion of engineering knowledge from the outset of the conceptual design phase and represents an important step in what is argued as a necessary cultural change within the Dutch building domain.
