Q5 DESIGN IS ?
We are texting with 100 prominent architects – sending them SMSes. The architects are out of context, so are their sentences. They are replying, but at the same time, they are unaware of the action. If they have something to say, they will write back. Consistency is in the spectrum.

DESIGN IS ?
To me, every design is about both poetic thinking and mathematics.
Beforehand, our design is brought to a reasonable solution through the filter of Mr. Sasaki's aesthetics.
For me, design is not how it looks, but the process itself.
When I pick one way the design is completely different from the other way, one isn't sure what is going to happen.
It is not primary for me to argue which design is the best and I think it is meaningâless.
All design is Communication Design Architecture's social functionality resides to a large extent in its communicative capacity.

The difference between the idea of the project and the idea of design is crucial here.
The bio climatic design is halfway between the heavily insulated Nordic model and Mediterranean patio style architecture.
Excellence in design is pursued through collaborating closely with our clients, consultant teams, contractors and end users.
The design is not just one huge building, but rather a cluster of many small, varied buildings grouped around two central streets connecting to the surrounding city.
At the center of this newly unified design is a high speed rail connection to regional transit.
The design is to increase interaction among students as much as possible as we think interaction between teachers and student and among students themselves is the most effective way of education.
I think interior design is not only about creating space using given material we find in the market but in fact we have to find chances in projects to manufacture it by our own to get interestingly unique components.
The design is marked by a sensitive use of light and dark wood, stone, plaster, and glass.
The store and restaurant's design is inspired by traditional Bahamas architecture and the spirit of the original Tommy Bahama's in Naples, Florida. Custom made wood Bahamas shutters define the bar and kitchen in the restaurant, and similar shutters form movable partitions in the retail store.
Network design is an innovative methodology that updates traditional public participation processes.

he is a pulmonologist and he came up to us and explained early on in the project what the role is of these terrible waiting areas and how the lack of design is causing disease to transfer.
cholera for example was directly related to how our cities are capable of coping with water and sanitation, and how the lack of design is causing public health nightmares.
hospital design is really a challenging typology and it's really a systems design problem and many of the architects that coped with that, especially in the 60s and 70s, being influenced by the metabolists or archigram and trying to deploy those as medical facilities we find is totally fascinating.
the motto that we live by is that we like to think that design is never neutral â it either helps or it hurts.
Informing urban design: an example An example of how the above techniques could be used to inform urban design is given here.
FUTURE WORK Automated building design is ongoing research topic.
Thus, while the design is only truly controllable in an iterative trial and error process, this unpredictability offers the chance of discovering unexpected results in an open formal range.
Material driven design is not without precedent in architecture.
Traditionally, in architecture, the abstract space of design is conceived as an ideal neutral space of Cartesian coordinates.
In naval design, for example, the abstract space of design is imbued with the properties of flow, turbulence, viscosity, and drag so that the form of a hull can be conceived in motion through water.
In contrast, animate design is defined by the co presence of motion and force at the moment of formal conception.
Once design is posed within a Leibnizian monadological space, architecture may embrace a sensibility of micro and macro contextual specificity as a logic that can not be idealized in an abstract space of fixed coordinates.
The challenge for contemporary architectural theory and design is to try to understand the appearance of these tools in a more sophisticated way than as simply a new set of shapes.
