Title: Technical Intuition: The Role Of Reason And Intuition In The Design Process
Authors: Shotton, Elizabeth

Date: May-2004
Abstract: There was some discussion, formal and otherwise, at the recent EAAE conference regarding the relationship between the teaching of technology and the traditional design studio. Some very positive experiences were related but there was some hesitation voiced regarding the influence and role of design studios in developing a student’s attitude toward technology as well. Now it is an interesting thing to hear this hesitation voiced from the other side as it were. Speaking from the vantage point of the design studio, there is often a similar hesitation on the part of design instructors as to the role that technology should or does play within the territory of design. Yet design instructors are not opposed to material and technological sophistication being exhibited in their students work. Quite the contrary. Despite the reputation we may have among technology staff the vast majority of us desire the fullest realization of a design project possible.
