Author C. M. Herr
Christiane M. Herr is an architect, researcher and teacher focusing on the areas of digitally supported design, conceptual design, design studio teaching and traditional Chinese approaches to creative thinking. After working and studying in Germany, Australia, Hong Kong and China, she is currently teaching architecture at the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan. In her Ph.D work at The University of Hong Kong, Christiane explored cellular automata as a means to establish architectural design support, which led to her strong interest in diagrams and designerly ways of seeing. Christiane’s approach to education for creativity relies strongly on second-order cybernetics and radical constructivism. In her research work, Christiane focuses on the integration of designerly and scientific modes of inquiry through empirical, grounded, and action research approaches. Christiane is a member of conference organizing and review committees for the ASC and CAADRIA.
