Methods of Inquiry in Architectural Design: a quick guide

What are methods of inquiry?

"Inquiry is the creation of knowledge or understanding; it is the reaching out of a human being beyond himself to a perception of what he may be or would be, or what the world could be or ought to be." - C. West Churchman, The Design of Inquiring systems.

This guide presents key resources and practical information primarily in landscape and architectural inquiry/research techniques.  The focus is on materials in the KentLINK catalog and in the Joseph F. Morbito Architecture Library.
