    Abstract

    In the literature many models and theories of design can be found. Part of these models and theories are considered incommensurable, while some of them are complementary or overlapping. However, even if general consensus on these models and theories exists, doubt has been raised on the extent to which these models and theories are valid.
    In this paper we will present an approach towards research into identification of the many dimensions involved in characterising design. Such identification would provide us with a basis for a new typology of design, metaphorically called ‘Dirty Blackboard’. Our ultimate goal is to use the typology to classify existing models and theories of design with respect to their value and use in specific design situations.
