For example, we see how it consists of various activities. Some work focuses on theory, some on methods, and some on methodology, whereas the main body of work typically consists of constructive studies, reported in journals, conferences, and exhibitions.

63 Some consequences of this collaboration have left a mark on constructive design research. For example, experimental research became an almost unquestioned choice for constructive design researchers, especially in technical universities and the technology industry. Design also juggles with the worlds of art and culture. Even designers who work with industry typically have one foot in art and culture, as in the famous case of Olivetti. Designers working for Olivetti in Ivrea, about 100 kilometers west of Milan, also continued living and working in Milan with company approval.
