If you can correctly identify a problem, it's already a historical condition.
We consider it part of an architect’s responsibility to look past the current projects towards the future of the built environment.
The earliest stages of design are contemplation of larger social and environmental problems. Going beyond solutions, we have to envision the potential beauty of the complications of our solutions, how they will evolve and react to the unknown. What if we introduced the unknown as a basic fact at the beginning, a precondition? Randomness or intuition can bring seemingly unrelated design ideas into architectural “visioning”. This is a natural concept to anyone who has studied creativity and cognition.
