The research in creativity has been always worthy to be discussed and reviewed in the field of design. Some researchers believe in the correlation between the creativity and individual characteristic. The others researchers believe that the creativity should be based on the value and the recognition of society. However, the creativity can not only be examined within the content of personal or social level, but has been viewed significantly in its relation with the current trend through different time of the history. It is also known as Zeitgeist in French. Zeitgeist, frequently mentioned in the research of creativity, is important especially in the domain of architecture. For examples, in the Renaissance, Modernism, and the Digital Age that we all live in, all these particular ages, creativity has shown its tremendous existence to people. Zeitgeist of creativity has not happened by coincidence. It has its hidden orders and has been well structured. Therefore, the research is trying to find the factors that induce the “Creative Age” to happen through the researches from the fields of psychology, sociology and cognition. Next, by showing the examples of the three major ages when creativity took the place, we can build up a theoretical model of “Creative Age” in order to emphasize on the statements provided regarding the relation between creativity and different ages. The methodology is separated into three steps: the cognition experiment, case study and protocol analysis. Firstly, it started with the analytical review to infer the eight factors which the creativity is formed by. They are politics, economics, group interaction, culture, technology, design method, media and form. We then used the cognition experiment to prove our presumptions. Next, the six phenomena were analyzed and use them to integrate the preliminary model of creativity age. Finally, the model can be examined and verified by protocol analysis. However, by proving a new idea such as “Creative Age” in a PHD thesis, there would be many limitations existed such as research subjects and materials. In this case, the study has clearly stressed in the beginning that the model of creative age solely focus on the domain of architecture rather than the other fields. There would be unavoidable subjective ideas including the weight and relation of factors which the model is formed with. The thesis has disclosed a new concept: the creative age. Through the process of inferring the theoretical model of creative age, we could comprehend how the “Creative Age” has been created and the essential requirements of its forming. In this study, creativity involves interpersonal and social-culture processes as well. It refers a concept of Time-Series in creativity, an architectural history about creativity. As a result, this thesis is not only about a research in creativity but also providing a proper way to expand the quality and quantity of creativity in architecture.
