The Design Addiction
It has been a while since I have posted for the last time but I am back! This time with a very architectural post. A post full of thoughts about design, lines and aesthetics.
Design. What a word!
While I was writing this post I was trying very hard to give a definition! I couldn't, so I started searching on google. So I found this:
Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system (as in architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit diagrams and sewing patterns). Design has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases the direct construction of an object (as in pottery, engineering, management, cowboy coding and graphic design) is also considered to be design. More formally design has been defined as follows. (noun) a specification of an object, manifested by an agent, intended to accomplish goals, in a particular environment, using a set of primitive components, satisfying a set of requirements, subject to constraints; (verb, transitive) to create a design, in an environment (where the designer operates)
Well for me it was not enough! In my opinion you can not describe with words what design is. You can just show it with pictures. Thats what I did! Panathenaic stadium was the perfect place to give an example about true and long lasting desing and aesthetic.
