The Agency of Designers, Users and Artefacts in Architectural Design
The aim of this PhD project is to develop a framework that provides architects theoretical and practical footing in designing towards social ends. To this end the project links philosophical studies of design and design practices by studying how different forms of agency that together bring about the social role of an artefact can be involved in the architectural design process.
