Where next for design research? Understanding research impact and theory building

Research impact and theory development are major challenges facing design research. However, the nature of these challenges and how they should be addressed is a controversial question. Philip Cash discusses three contributions: demonstrating the explanatory and predictive power of theory development for research impact; showing that theory development has broken down in design research; and offering a theoretical ‘landscape’ of design research, which is used to provide an evidence-based agenda for future theory development.
