Abstract:

The objective of this paper is to investigate the origins of design research in Turkey from various perspectives. The roots of design research can be traced back to the declaration of the Republic and its reforms relating to universities and the educational system, when the influences of refugee German professors soon became significant. Demand for design research coexisted at the periphery with the development of industry; and currently, design research is undertaken primarily by design academics, graduate and postgraduate students.
