Comparing paradigms for describing design activity [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
In this study the two main paradigms for looking at the design activity are compared in terms of their ability to describe the industrtial design process. Special interest is paid to how close these descriptions are to capturing the design activity as experienced by the designers themselves.
