The essays in this anthology are field notes from design space. Not only are they descriptions of what transpired in the experimental space of various design experiments, but they showcase also the cognitive dynamics involved in design processes. Each essay describes selected aspects of architectural design practices. For instance, how to structure experiments, how to use unpredictability, how to reconstruct an idea in new forms, and how to develop aesthetic and practical solutions in complex situations. Taken together, these essays form a kaleidoscopic, yet systematic impression of how architectural design processes unfold.
