Design: the man-made object

Part of 'The man-made world: a foundation course, units 33-4' Open University course.

The aims of these units are:

  1. To show that the forms given to man-made objects are not simply determined by a definition of uses and performances, but by a much more complex mix of knowledge, context, and aspirations and value of the designers.
  2. To introduce and describe some basic activities undertaken by the designers.
  3. To show that a designer operates within a social framework.
  4. To provide some introductory exercises.
