Methodology: Experimental Research
There are numerous design methodologies: human centered research, data driven research, experimental studies, and so on. To create new communication tools, experimental studies are relevant toward developing ideas step by step through the form making process.
“Experimental study is a very rigorous exercise that allows a designer to confidently engage in work whose results are unpredictable.”
Experimental study doesn’t have final and concrete results. It is an open-ended design practice that can lead to next levels of inquiry. It is true that experimental study often causes designers to have fear of not knowing what can be created in the process. However, processes of experimental study have its own value for design academia.
For One Day Poem Pavilion, the above process was repeated three rounds. My goal of the case study was not to complete a process, but to continue my studies in an experimental manner.
