✱ Evolution of a Design


Evolution of a Design

See the design of a fire station change over a relatively short period of time as I take it through the design process.

Sometimes the evolution of a particular design seems to have a mind of its own. Here is a recent example of a project I've been working on that has had many schemes and changes in a very short period of time due to a number of factors. Some changes were made by us, some by a developer, and some by his client. You never know where your constraints are going to come from, or whose opinion will end up shaping the design of a building.

I find it's important to document the process of architecture so we can trace why decisions were made and why we decided to change things. This slideshow shows the design process I've been through over the last few weeks on this particular project.

Visit the slideshow for a breakdown of the process so far.
