The Design Process - inherent conflicts? It is frequently stated that the activity of design is an iterative one; ie that it is a process whereby ideas are refined through constant change and development; if one also considers that designing is also very difficult: Hartwell and Holland (1) describe design "as an activity which attempts to reach an effective compromise between conflicting, complex and often apparently irreconcilable criteria"; then the key question arises: how can there be an effective interface between the obviously creative (generative?) elements of the design process and the (often) very functional / technical requirements of a typical design outcome.
