WDG PHILOSOPHY IN DESIGN

Good design practice goes beyond making arbitrary or intuitive conclusions.  It dismisses stylistic solutions that mimic trends.  Good design is the result of a creative solution that expressively harmonizes with the understanding of specific practical needs.  It is based on relevant ideas that effectively transform into a three-dimensional reality which in turn enhances our experiences in life.  In the practice of architecture, as with many other design related professions, the way we arrive at a relevant design solution is by the process we employ.  That process involves the assimilation of a multitude of variables that we analyze, consider, and implement.  In architecture, that process has to start with dialog, collaboration, and a physical space.  These expose practical needs, problems to solve, and physical constraints.  Coupled with them are other necessary aspects related to site specific conditions, cultural relevancy, and social responsibility.  When so many mutually exclusive elements are at play, a process-oriented design approach is critical in order to arrive at a good solution.   Whether a private residence that responds to the lifestyle of its occupants and environmental context, or a public building that responds to greater human needs and the fabric of a city, good design is the result of an intelligent and intentional process.
