CCDN 371. CULTURES OF DESIGN.

words. images. artefacts.

I mentioned in class that there are books on reserve in the library that you might find interesting and helpful for the final project. (If your course outline says “excerpts” that just means that you only need to read the interesting bits, and not the whole book.)

  • Antonelli, Paola (ed). 2008. Design and the Elastic Mind. Museum of Modern Art.
  • Bagnara, Sebastiano and Gillian Crampton Smith (eds.) 2006. Theories and Practice in Interaction Design. Lawrence Erlbaum.
  • Dunne, Anthony. 1999. Hertzian Tales: Electronic Products, Aesthetic Experience and Critical Design. RCA.
  • Dunne, Anthony and Fiona Raby. 2001. Design Noir: The Secret Life of Electronic Objects. Birkhäuser.
  • Lorenc, Jan, Lee Skolnick and Craig Berger. 2007. What is Exhibition Design? RotoVision.
  • Sterling, Bruce. 2005. Shaping Things. MIT Press.
  • Thackara, John. 2005. In the Bubble: Designing in a Complex World. MIT Press.

I’ve also just learned that Moggridge’s Designing Interactions is lost, so if you’d like to take a look at it you can borrow my copy or check out the website.
