This methodological book describes eight forms of study as they relate to design:
- Naming and describing;
- Design research and typology;
- Programming and optimising;
- Technical study;
- Design study;
- Study by design.
These eight sections are the spine of the work. Its compartmentalisation is based on the work of two Methodology Committees of the Faculty of Architecture at the Technical University of Delft (in 1990 and in 2000 AD) and establishes, in this sense, the list of the methodological end-terms of the education. The sequencing of the sections and the chapters within them is showing a certain space for conditioning. Design research, for instance, is impossible without a description of the designs to be studied; in its turn describing study pre-supposes that the components and concepts in these designs can be named and retrieved (naming).
