Abstract: Design research, since the beginning in the 1960s, has focused on universal operations of design processes and methods. The past research on mental processes (Asimow, 1969) (Rowe, 1987) developed models of the First Generation Design Methods, and subsequent revelations about design problems (Simon, 1969) gave rise to the participatory design methods and the Second Generation. Design is continually done by person(s), but the unique background and experience of designers have not been studied in relevance to design processes and methods. Literature review investigated the three different areas of research on design methods: methods and operations, development and reflective practice, and habitus and influence. A preliminary framework was constructed and used to formulate interview questions. Through interviews with architecture students from NUS, information about students’ design processes and their personal history were collected. Comparisons between students and analysis using the preliminary framework, deduction of relationships between personal experiences, design methods, and design products were established.
