In Design Thinking Peter Rowe provides a systematic account of the process of designing in architecture and urban planning. He examines multiple and often dissimilar theoretical positions whether they prescribe forms or simply provide procedures for solving problems -- as particular manifestations of an underlying structure of inquiry common to all designing. Over 100 illustrations and a number of detailed observations of designers in action support Rowe's thesis.

Peter G. Rowe is Raymond Garbe Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at Harvard University and Chairman of the Department of Urban Planning and Design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Harvard University.

Editorial Reviews

Peter Rowe's DesignThinking is a very useful compendium of ideas, examples, and literature about design inquiry in architecture. It is unusual to find in one source so many different perspectives, drawn from so many different fields of study.
