Description

Outlines the practical realities faced by a design professional when trying to balance a client brief and environmental conditions with creative inspiration.

How do our minds work when we design? How do we organise and assimilate information, create and evaluate options, and make decisions?

These questions have fascinated and absorbed architect and sculptor Richard Bertman (FAIA) since his graduate school days.

Now, after a 40-year career, Bertman has used the design of a vacation house as an experiment to explore these questions.

The result, documented in 'The Design Process and the Art of the Single Family Home,' is a fascinating and revealing insight into the creative process.

With detailed notes and sketches, Bertman charts each stage of the design process, questioning and examining why certain decisions are made, how problems are solved, and generally exploring the processes involved in creative thinking.
