      Supplementary Description: This course aims at supporting each student to create a developed intellectual understanding of the professional design process. An underlying assumption is that a reflective and philosophical understanding of practice supports and fosters a developed practical design competence. In the course we will therefore examine, analyze, study, and discuss how design can be understood, described, and developed as a process of inquiry, thought, and action.
