Specifical- Architectural Theory and Design Research 27 ly, he suggests that a scientific [design research] theory is "a set of interrelated concepts held to be an explanation for observable phenomena by recourse to unobserved, more abstract principles"; in contrast, a design theory relates to observable phenomena and serves "in some way as yet undefined" (our emphasis) to explain them. But more importantly, a design theory also serves "to define that which is proposed, or ... " In other words, scientific and design theories are held to be two different types of theories, the former conceived as explanatory theory, the latter as prescriptive or normative theory.

This notion, which builds substantially upon the work of numerous Italian architectural theorists, was also popularized by Rossi's Architecture of the City (1982). Krier's Urban Space (1979) and Rowe and Koetter's Collage City (1978) represent other examples of this kind of analysis. Finally, the concept of place has emerged in architectural theory in the last 15-20 years. " (p. 6) and which together determine the environmental character, the essence of a place, its atmosphere.

On the other hand, mythic objectivism is evident in the modernists' adoption of scientific concepts. As the reproduction of the illustration titled "The Plan Calculates Itself from the Following Factors" (produced by the Bauhaus in 1930) suggests, the assumption was that precise programmatic analysis would mirror the sort of cause-effect relationships that were thought to be integral to an "objective" science.
