Role of the Designer:

We design from inside ourselves.

-personal experiences

-social aspects

-intimate needs of the space

-supervise

-create

-build

-coordinate

Advertisements

Design Practice

-talk to the client

-look at the space, bring camera and measuring tape

-characteristics of the space – blueprints, CAD drawings

-context of the project – budget, needs, users of the space

-wants and desires of the client

-religious and cultural issues

-time spent in the space

-storage – office, special equipment

-image


You must understand:

-constraint issues

-the problem and its parameters

-the client and the activities of the space

-goals of the user/client/stakeholder (all could be different)

-desires and needs of the occupants

-nature of the space

-intention for the space and its users


Things to consider when designing for a space:

What activities will take place in the space?

What furnishings and equipment will be needed?

What kind of space is needed?

What adjacencies are beneficial for traffic flow and functionality?

What additional requests does the client have?
