The Structure of Design Revolutions:
Kuhnian Paradigm Shifts in Creative Problem Solving
In the article, “The Structure of Design Revolutions: Kuhnian Paradigm Shifts in Creative Problem Solving” (2010) Nathan Crilly denotes the parallels between the creative design progress and scientific discovery.
Crilly organizes the thesis into four sections. He began by introducing the creative design progress and it’s foundation. Which reflects him to mention Kuhn’s account on the structure of scientific revolution along with his influence on the paradigm shifts. In return, this leads Crilly to exemplify the connection between scientific discoveries and creative design along with its support for the structure of the creative design progress and it’s nine propositions. Which concludes, him mirroring upon his initial argument.
Crilly’s intent is to convey the structure of scientific discovery and creative design progress in order to aid reflective practice.
Nathan Crilly’s approach for articulating his argument concerning scientific discovery mirroring activities of creative design along with the support of the creative design progress and the nine propositions was delivered to the audience in an inclusive manner that allowed them to visually form the structure in their minds while connecting with the language.
