It is the very interconnectedness of all these factors which is the essence of design problems rather than the isolated factors themselves. In this respect designing is rather like devising a crossword. Change the letters of one word and several other words will need altering necessitating even further changes. Modify the dish of George Sturt's cartwheel and it may fail to support its load and the lateral thrusts unless the angle of toe in and axle mounting are also changed. After this the cart may not fit the rutted roads unless the length of the axle and shape of the body are changed.

It is rarely possible to discern precisely how far above the stated problem one should begin and how far below one should call a halt. Creatively uncovering the range of his problem is one of the designer's most important skills, and we shall look at some problem identification techniques in chapter 12. The structure of design problems Design problems are often both multidimensional and highly interactive. Very rarely does any part of a designed thing serve only one purpose. The American architect Philip Johnson is reported to have observed that some people find chairs beautiful to look at because they are comfortable to sit in, while others find chairs comfortable to sit in because they are beautiful to look at.

Even in the 28 WHAT IS DESIGN? 3 Even the simplest map of the design process must allow for a return loop to all preceding functions game of chess a proposed move may reveal a new problem and suggest that the original perception of the state of the game was incomplete and that further analysis is necessary. This is even more frequently the case in design where the problem is not totally described, as on a chess board. " So we are inevitably led to the conclusion that our map should actually show a return loop from each function to all preceding functions.
