“Overlooking the Visual”
Kathryn Moore lifts the philosophical veil obscuring critical, artistic discourse. Questioning traditional theories of perception she builds up a sensible, pragmatic approach to design education and practice, demystifying the art of design and demonstrating the real value of design expertise. Crossing boundaries between philosophy, theory and practice it is an interdisciplinary analysis of consciousness and the creative process that is of considerable interest to those concerned with design quality in the built environment and to those striving to meet current global environmental challenges.
