Functional Aspects

Design Process and Investigation Techniques

Most buildings are designed for people, and since people's needs change with the times, location, and tradition, the criteria for designing a home, office, restaurant, or commercial space will vary as well.This is particularly true when it comes to planning interior spaces. In the Middle East, for example, space standards are generally more generous then those of the United States and Europe. As discussed in the previous chapter, the first step in the design process is to determine the client's precise needs. A number of questions need be answered that will provide an insight to the client's functional, aesthetic and psychological needs (Figure 3.2).
