Example text

You may imagine a few possibilities to explore that seem in tune with the concept so far. This seems like a very inefficient way of doing things: surely one answer must be better than another. Probably, but you will only find out by trying them. Once you have explored and begun to commit to certain directions, this will lead you to make subsequent moves in related directions. If there is no such thing as one right answer to any architectural problem, how do architects make decisions about the right answer for their project?

Critical judgement is a term much used in architecture schools. It should not be confused with ‘criticism’: the comments made by reviewers at crits or reviews. Critical judgement is a way of thinking; it helps architects to make decisions about how to solve architectural problems. It is the ability of an architect to question their own decisions willingly and openly and compare them to the other possible decisions that they, or their collaborators, can imagine. Critical judgement is a product of an architect’s core values, knowledge, training, experience, aesthetic preferences and current thought.

The design studio › The design process › The design project Project: Hearth House Location: London, UK Architect: AOC Date: 2010 Architectural design problems are complex and require creative solutions. Although architects often make provocative, didactic or stylistic judgements about different forms of architecture that they either value or deride, there is not one ‘correct’ way to design. Architectural experiences, influences and inspirational tutors or colleagues contribute towards the making of an architect but each person responds differently to these stimuli and must make their own value judgements.
