DYMISTIFYING DESIGN PROCESSES OF ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS
Design process can refer to an activity with series of distinctive and instinctive tasks involving intense progression of creative thinking and imaginations. During the different steps and options of design processes innate and impulsive skills are much used rather than conscious and voluntary decisions.
Detail design is the systematic process of producing illustrative information, solutions and methods to problems seeking to translate conceptual design to buildable-physical form in a finished appearance.
Creativity in detailing
Due to current presence of numerous choices of materials and construction approaches it is definitely that detailing can be looked upon as a design process. The complexity of selections and installations make it appear even as more of thoughtful procedure rather than an instructional one.
Adding to these points, building performance requirement makes it even more complicated activity to design an architectural detail. Fire, thermal, lighting and many other requirements for evaluation of buildings entails architects to be more vigilant and take extra cautions in development of design details for the intent of achieving these optimal goals.
Creativity or Processes: Considering critics
When developing a design detail it is necessary to give maximum attention to design trends of that particular detail. Overlooking the past achievements can lead to use much time and resource in the development of a detail unnecessarily.
