Spatial Imagination in Design

‘Spatial Imagination in Design’ examined imagination as a key ‘creative driver’ in the development of innovative and qualitative spatial design processes. It brought together an international group of academics and design professionals from 11 disciplines (architecture, computer sciences, creative arts, electronics, engineering design, environmental consultants, graphic and communication design, history of design, product design, psychology and urban design). The cluster focused on cross-sector and multi-disciplinary research and collaboration. Its activities were structured around 5 workshops which examined the relationship between imagination and the design processes of writing, drawing and modeling.

Spatial Imagination in Design produced a catalogue, Peg Rawes and Jane Rendell (eds), Spatial Imagination, (London, 2005), an exhibition, ‘Spatial Imagination’, curated by Penelope Haralambidou, the Domo Baal Gallery, London, (January 2005), a website designed by Stuart Munro, and a symposium, ‘Spaces of Exchange’, CABE (Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment), (January 2006).
