Abstract

From an epistemological point of view, research in Architecture still suffers a difficult position between applied sciences and humanities. The emergent area of Research by Design opens up new perspectives on design as a form of scientific knowledge and on methods and techniques for generative thinking. Among these, the analogical process plays a central role. By first delimiting the topic of analogy and its heteronomous character, the contribution focuses on its interpretation within the design discipline, particularly by placing the positions of Aldo Rossi, Oswald Mathias Ungers and John Hejduk vis-à-vis, and by reflecting on its relevance within contemporary architectural research.
