Abstract

Design deliberation refers to the process of thoughtfully weighing options, before making a design decision. This process is strongly related to argumentation, not only because of the well-known relation between argumentation and deliberation, but also due to characteristics of the design process. However, no structural model of team design deliberation exists to guide designers’ practice. This paper checks the hypothesis of inter-dependence between argument structures and group decision-making struc-ture as expressed through prescribed deliberation stages.

Argumentation and design deliberation: a mutual relationship

University of Windsor

Design deliberation refers to the process of thoughtfully weighing options, before making a design decision. This process is strongly related to argumentation, not only because of the well-known relation between argumentation and deliberation, but also due to characteristics of the design process. However, no structural model of team design deliberation exists to guide designers’ practice. This paper checks the hypothesis of inter-dependence between argument structures and group decision-making struc-ture as expressed through prescribed deliberation stages.
