Consilience for universal design: the emergence of a third culture

Dalcher, Darren (2006) Consilience for universal design: the emergence of a third culture. Universal Access in the Information Society, 5 (3) . pp. 253-268. ISSN 1615-5289 [Article] (doi:10.1007/s10209-006-0049-5)


This paper makes a case for a design culture required for the successful development of IT systems while emphasising the role of practice as distinct from science or the arts. The intellectual development here draws upon the discipline of design and offers a framework for mapping different design environments and their requirements in terms of resolution methods. The work emphasises the role of practice in complex and adaptive environments and has been instrumental in shaping a new approach to developing practitioners. This has served the underlying philosophy utilised in innovative new programmes and has proved popular with industry.
