Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6767)


Over the past years, many research methods have been developed to improve designing systems. There is, however, great need for research in this field in order to find new techniques and solutions appropriate for modelling structures of innovative products. This paper puts forward methodological and practical evaluations of some aspects of design creation. Author presents main principles that underline methodological perspectives for a closer integration of art and technology in design of innovative products. The paper presents two key research problems: a) possibility of combining traditional design methods with new computing tools. b) design methodology as a basis for multidisciplinary innovation process. Examples used to illustrate the methodology include design of an architectural structures.
