Abstract

Design Innovation for the Built Environment: Research by Design and the Renovation of Practice, edited by Michael U. Hensel, an architect, professor, and expert in architecture tectonics at the Oslo School of Architecture—brings in one volume 16 chapters by over 20 scholars and academics from around the globe. This new publication presents provocative ideas about the present and the future of practice and pedagogy in built environment-related disciplines, as well as how they can be adopted and adapted to promote and support design innovation. Hensel adeptly puts together 16 contributions of committed expert academics and professionals into a unified volume that speaks to academics and professionals. Appreciating the potential opportunities that knowledge can create, contributions pave the road for a responsive built environment education and practice.
