See it done well, you realize your error
No sense designing unless we also grow
We make some design resolutions each year. This year, number 6
is "We shall start with people space as we begin a design and leave
comfortable room for people in every design."
By setting a target we keep that item in our sights. That helps
us notice aspects of scenes we might otherwise miss, and understand
the key to great designs like this one.
What do you think? Is room for people important here?
When we try to imagine this space without that alcove and bench
as a destination, we come up with a big zero.
Striving to improve is why we share our designs-a-making with
you -- it helps us stay on track.
