- DescriptionEthgraphy for Designers teaches architects and designers how to listen actively to the kwledge people have about their own culture. This approach gives structure to values and qualities. It does this by ting the terms and underlying structure of thought people use to describe aspects of their culture. By responding to underlying cognitive patterns, the architect can both respond to the user and interpret creatively.

This book is a practical guide for those teaching social factors and social research methods to designers and for those using these methods in practice.
