Why is it important to reflect on your design process & what can you learn from this?
Reflection is critical in the design process. The design must be constantly reflected on for it to grow from a concept into a final design. However at every stage, the design must be reflected and compared to the overriding concept, so that the design reflects the overarching ideas instead of the details of the design.
In terms of my design the overarching ideas are:
– Environment as the Third Teacher
– Visual & Tactile Playground through Materials
– Permaculture: in the Design of Spaces and in the Circulation of Vegetation through the site.
