This is a great short video from a few years ago uploaded by 30X40 Design Workshop
. In this video, they explore 8 positive habits of successful architects that lay the foundation for good design.
1. Tell a good story
Use a narrative or “Parti” to influence and guide the design.
2. Take Risks
Challenge the rules and approach problem solving from an innovative perspective.
3. Sweat the Details
Details are often the things we most engage with on a daily basis.
Eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
5. Establish Order
Repetitive elements provides a reference point and background.
7. Break the Rules
Find moments to deviate from the established repetitive order to enforce the hierarchy of elements.
8. Engage the Senses
The sound of rain on a metal roof can have as large an experiential impact as the visual aesthetic itself.
