Annotations:
  • Design is a process. The idea is to develop purposeful and innovative solutions that embody functional and aesthetic demands and that are based on needs and the intended user.
  • It’s applied on digital and physical services and processes as well as environments
  • many loops of “concepting” and testing.
  • The people-driven approach is key, together with system thinking.
  • We’re creating value from different perspectives in this way.
  • Typically, what we’ve found is that if you have the right design, at the right price point, that is driving sustainability and customer experience in a demonstrable way—that is a key driver of growth for your offering

Annotations:
  • The ascendance of computational design tools, in concert with the automated production of construction documents and specifications, will greatly reduce the number of people needed to complete architectural design services.
  • recent advancements in digital processing are beginning to coalesce in such a way that they’ll soon outstrip an architect’s ability to devise design iterations.
  • This method will be embraced because the advantages are too great to resist: buildings will be designed in a fraction of the time needed today, with a fraction of the effort. They will likely perform better than today’s buildings and, with an infinite range of design options to choose from, they will probably look better, too.
  • the architect of tomorrow will be a curator, defining problems instead of solving them.
  • The idea of applying design thinking to anything, from the structure of a company to the format of an educational curriculum, seems to be undergoing universal adoption very quickly

  • marketing of knowledge
  • desire to inexpensively transfer knowledge
  • The value of encapsulation lies in the avoidance of the cost of learning to make use of the encapsulated knowledge

  • "Good design doesn’t cost, but it pays." [Richard H. Driehaus]
  • good design is potentially good business
  • signature architects
  • office buildings designed by signature architects have rents that are 5-7% higher and sell for prices 17% higher
  • "Good design is good business." [Thomas Watson, Jr.]
  • Good design depends on a good design process.
  • great designers have taught us how to translate the inherent complexities of architectural design into subsets of interlinked decisions with an eye on the overall result
  • "When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong." [Richard Buckminster ‘Bucky’ Fuller]
  • consider what kind of elements may justify a premium
  • design beyond the baseline minimum necessity
  • the premium is justified on the basis of the value of the design
  • buildings with high environmental ratings are attracting tenants quicker than similar buildings without ratings
  • The challenge remains how to manage and deliver projects where longevity and worth are valued along with cost and price
  • Educated clients and developers realise that good design – including high performance – is good business – Green is the colour of money
  • "What works good is better than what looks good.  Because what works good lasts." [Ray Eames]
