Most of former studies in design thinking focused on the nature design, and tried to explore its design black box and realize its design cognition. On the contrary, researches in method-driven design were much less than that, and never discussed the design thinking of method-driven design as well as any appropriate model can present the its design cognition. This study attempts to discuss the method-driven design, to found a cognitive model, which can describe the construction of ‘method’, and explore the design process of method-driven design, to find out where are the differences between method-driven design and nature design in design cognition. The methodology of this study includes two parts. First, based on the information processing theory and the concept of visual thinking, a cognitive model was founded by reviewing the former studies to explain, “design method”. Moreover, it can express the operations of method and its influence in design cognition. Secondly, two cognitive experiments are proposed. The analysis including two coding schemes is proposed later. At the end of this paper, some phenomena of applying knowledge between both two sides as well as its implications will be revealed raised on the analysis of the empirical data.
