“There are many external and internal influences on architectural knowledge, for sure, but what is equally certain is that new forms of insight and knowledge are continually being created. As such, architecture forms a genuine discourse and field of practice, even if it is also one in which there are a myriad of opinions, not least about how even to define what architecture is.” Murray Fraser. “Introduction”. In Design Research in Architecture, edited by Murray Fraser. Farnham: Ashagate, 2013.
