Material Engagement Model - A Study of Spatial Designers' Lived Experience of Unknown Materials
MetadataShow full item record
The Material Engagement Model (MEM) provides a heuristic model for understanding the telic and paratelic processes that occur when spatial designers encounter an unknown material. The model is derived from qualitative research with a diverse set of international spatial designers, whose practices involve advanced materials and innovative creative risk-taking. A phenomenological analysis grounded on the work of Heidegger and Bourdieu is applied to the Reversal Theory model of Apter in the development of the MEM.
