Abstract

Current literature shows that there is a lack of empirical evidence support the understanding of design creativity in parametric design environments (PDEs). Situated creativity which regards the changing context of design environment has been suggested to be an index for design novelty and unexpected discoveries. In PDEs, the nature of its dynamic design process expresses frequent change of design situation, which is potentially beneficial for evoking situated creativity. Aiming to explore situated creativity inspired in PDEs, this study proposes a theoretical framework based on Gero‘s FBS model in which the method of protocol analysis is adopted. Furthermore, a pilot study involves two students in a design experiment has been conducted to test the framework. In the end, several preliminary results regarding the relationship between situated creativity and parametric design processes have been developed.

ICDC 2012: The 2nd International Conference on Design CreativityDesign Creativity is an important and interesting topic of study in design. Since it involves the profound and essential nature of design, design creativity is expected to be a key in not only addressing the social problems that we are facing, but also producing an innate appreciation for beauty and happiness in our minds. In order to elucidate the nature of design creativity, the following issues are being studied: - Cognitive processes underlying design creativity - Computational models of design...
