Open peer commentary on the article “Developing a Dialogical Platform for Disseminating Research through Design” by Abigail C. Durrant, John Vines, Jayne Wallace & Joyce Yee. Upshot: The question of more appropriate dissemination formats for research through design (RTD) is important, but secondary. Artefacts are just media in the knowledge-generating process. RTD is a much more powerful concept than presented here.
ERRATUM: In Table 1 on page 33, last row, the content of the right cell should read as follows:
■ Conciliation of theory and practice (strong theory)
■ embedded, implicated, engaged, situated (Sartre, Situationist) theory.
■ “Such research helps build a genuine theory of design by adopting an epistemological posture more consonant with what is specific to design: the project.”
