||Material Cognition: Designer’s Perception of Material in a Creative Design Process
||The new trends in digital design and fabrication attempt to utilize material information as a generative factor in the design and form exploration processes. An investigation on the designers’ cognitive processes in perceiving materiality in an integrated design process could potentially impact these integrated digital endeavors. As a result, this research explores the role of materiality as an external representation based on two main concepts in cognitive science, situated and distributed cognition.
