How else would any architect, landscape architect, or town planner design a house, a building, a neighborhood, a town, waterfronts and other public open spaces without having done (or read) extensively on "design science" as it applies to - a house, a building, a neighborhood, a town, waterfronts and other public open spaces.

The AAA just recently announced it was going to start to do some kind of research and come up with some ideas on "design science". If that is the case - makes one wonder how relevant 99.9% of architect designed building are in North America.

Ironically the Danish architect/town planner, Jan Gehl has 40 years of scientific research on design - which is why politicians around the world are hiring him to come and save their cities.
