Perspectives on Design Terminology

Authors: Michael Erlhoff, Timothy Marshall Publisher: Birkhäuser Publication date: 2008 Publication language: Angielski Number of pages: 450 Publication formats: EAN: 9783764381400 ISBN: 9783764381400 Category: Publisher's index: 9783764381400 Bibliographic note: -


This dictionary provides a stimulating and categorical foundation for a serious international discourse on design. It is a handbook for everyone concerned with design in career or education, who is interested in it, enjoys it, and wishes to understand it.
110 authors from Japan, Austria, England, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United States, and elsewhere have written original articles for this design dictionary. Their cultural differences provide perspectives for a shared understanding of central design categories and communicating about design. The volume includes both the terms in use in current discussions, some of which are still relatively new, as well as classics of design discourse. A practical book, both scholarly and ideal for browsing and reading at leisure.
