Design is a technique and thought combine together to solve the client's problem. But we still have the limitation of using the symbols for design:East meets West meets East. For Universe, they don't divide things. It's just one.
Hello…is this a review or a literature hint? I don't get it…
I just raised up the issue of design language. The world is gobalized. Do we have sufficient design language to solve other regions client's problems? Do we need a platform to collect other regions design language?
the modern world may be gloabalised but modernity has been characterised as the period when we couldn't agree on anything! i'm not sure any kind of universal language is a good idea. a lot of the most interesting things in the world are specific to very particular traditions and cultures which are hard to 'do' from the outside. for me, symbols like 'East' and 'West' are not problematic because they divide things up but because they are not specific enough (and cant be)...
No design language can be legitimate even languages. We need to dialogue to enrich the limitation of using design symbols. The flow of informations and symbols spread quickly across every region of East and West. It is good and fun for people to interact with different design languages.The design language is significant to a regional charcater and can be interact with others culture.
Can you expand on what a 'design symbol' is?
Design symbol is design language. It can be presented as a image or a wording. A good design symbol should be universal and easily be recognised. There is difference in using design symbols in different tradition and region. It's fun for people to recognise and interact with other's culture through design symbols. Design symbol can provide life more variation and fun.
could you give some examples. i'm just conscious in this kind of forum that as i'm an architect i tend to see everything through architecture and that it would be good to have a wider set of things to draw on. my reaction is to think firstly of a kind of typological view of architecture (the way that churches can be designed to look like churches rather than scaled up flower pots...) and then of symbolic languages in e.g. early christian architecture and representation... Am I on the right track?
I really appreciated your love in architecture. It's the fundamental of human that we can feel and sense. A good design should have the passion of questioning, observation and experimentation. We learned a lot from our history, culture and nature. They are the ingredients of our creation. To do good design, we should familiar with the topic and get passion. I quoted my best friend Perry "Enjoy your journey while you're travelling".
They are some examples (Beijing's swimming pool-Bubble's concept, japanese architect Ando-most of his works on "Circle and Square", Mondrian and etc.
