The Multi-Skilled Designer presents and analyses different approaches to contemporary architectural design and interprets them through the theory of multiple intelligences. D’souza highlights the skills diversity demonstrated in unique design approaches using examples from iconic design work as well as alternative practices. The book also establishes a systematic framework that uses the lens of cognitive psychology and developments in psychometric and brain research to analyze the unique cognitive thought processes of architectural designers and compiles design projects that could serve as a pedagogical companion for the reader. The book is aimed at design practitioners and students interested in examining their own thinking styles as well as those involved in design cognition research.
