Understanding the process of design
Design is a part of our everyday lives. Design is not limited to the specialized fields of architecture or artistry but extends well beyond. Even with the creation of an idea, a design must be developed with a process as the foundation. That process drives designers to refine and complete their best works. It is a set of guidelines reworked to develop an efficient method. This process is special and unique to each person, and in regards to architects and designers, shines light onto their passions and goals. My design process has grown and matured over my four years of studying architecture thanks to the numerous projects and competitions I have completed. This thesis explores my design process, explains the specific fundamentals that encompass how I design, and gives a detailed account of how I worked out my final competition and capstone project of my undergraduate career.
