I found myself asking this question again and again after looking at some of my architectural drawings and working with my client, Mike. What I’ve noticed is that there are a lot of things that have been left out of the equation, and I thought I would share it.
You will notice that I didn’t mention the fact that some architects have done a great job of capturing the relationship between the building and the site. This is a critical element in a building’s ability to retain value. It’s also critical in the relationship between the architect and the client. If the building is built correctly, it will stand on site. But if the site is built incorrectly, it will have to be moved to a different location.
This is an excellent reason to design with your clients in mind. Because if the architects have done their job properly, the client will be able to see exactly how the building was built, which will make the architect more successful in the future. When you are designing your building and you are drawing the plans, give the client as much information as you can about how the building will be constructed and what materials you will use.
Also, if you need to move a building, find someone who will help you move it to a new location. If the architect has done his job right, this is a very cheap way to make sure that your clients are happy with the building.
I think this is something that is very important in architecture. As architects we try to make sure that the architecture is something that we would use ourselves. But, as we are looking to the future, you should also make sure that the architecture you are creating is going to be beneficial to your clients as well.
This is where things get a bit tricky. The fact is that the building itself, even if it is the most expensive part of the entire project, may not be what the client wants. In most cases, they may not even be aware that it is the architect’s intention to make the building more functional by adding a coat of paint or a wall.
This is a problem that I see often when I create an architecture for a client. They may have never taken the time to ask themselves if the architectural concept is going to be able to address their specific needs. Therefore, they may be unsure if it’s worth the extra money to take the time to build the right architectural solution.
When I first started teaching architecture at a community college, I had an architect come in and show me some of his projects. As I listened in awe to his designs, I was shocked to find that some of his projects were in fact very functional, functional at the time, and functional for the right reason. His design for a church tower in his hometown, for example, was a big, functional, but not very attractive, addition.
I’m not sure how many architects there are out there who really feel that way. They come in and they’re thinking about how they can add functionality to a building, but they’re not really concerned with functional design in the first place. They are concerned about the design, and they’re thinking about the functional details of the design. Unfortunately, those functional details don’t always translate into a beautiful appearance, or even a usable design.
There are lots and lots of functional details to consider when designing an object. What sort of information should be stored on it? What does it do? What does it need to do? What does it look like? What does it feel like? How does it look in the context of other objects around it? What is its role in the overall design? What does it represent? These are all questions that should be considered by an architect before designing an object.
