The process of practice
From the offset, our aim has been to understand the process of practice – the essence of design, the workings of the partnership, and our role in the profession. This begins with a serious of intense conversations relying on intense collaboration between the partners. The main purpose of this is to establish the fundamental concern of the practice, which we identify as the creation and safeguarding of a principle idea or concept.
We refer to this as The Black Spot – a metaphor for the main idea for a project. Through sketch diagrams and conversations we have suggested that there is a ‘security system’ in place which is policed by the partners.
