Traditionally design is defined in terms of materiality, identity and function. Nowadays the scope of design includes other realms such as processes, services, social relations and information. Consequently this transition has influenced our understanding of design and the (research) methods in design education. This process offers new ways to investigate the strength of design. It offers a common ground for students to collaborate together and accordingly explore the new frontiers in design, wherein unknown matters are excepted.
