Generative design research is an approach to bring the people we serve through design directly into the design process in order to ensure that we can meet their needs and dreams for the future. The book introduces an emerging domain of design that is of immense interest today not only to the academic design research community but also to those in the business community charged with the development of human-centred products, systems, services, and environments. There are no other books with this focus and coverage currently available.

For a number of years I have been looking for a book for the User-Centered Innovation class I teach. I am glad I finally found one. While there were a few good candidates, this is the best in coverage of what I consider an essential topic. More than that, discussion, clarity, diversity of cases, and presentation are all of very high quality. Thanks!
All the chapters are worthwhile and contribute to a new view of design. Of particular interest to practitioners involved in health care design are the chapters dedicated to this field. A superb vision for participatory design in healthcare. The presentation of the workshop format provides a useful blueprint that can be employed in the development of new healthcare environments with a human centred focus. The advice about the practical engagement of health professionals and patients throughout the process is great common sense and yet so rarely used with this level of clarity in actual health facility project design work.
I am glad this book focuses primarily on the generative side of research because there are a bunch of books out there that topically cover research and you don't really get anything from them that you can understand how to use in practice. It has plenty of case studies so readers can understand the context of how each method and tool was used, from academic novice use all the way to expert industry use.
