Each Accuracy&Aesthetics Director is from a different discipline with unique knowledge and experience.  Bill Poulos at WDG Architecture had an apt metaphor for this process during a long meeting with a sustainable design consultant: “The design process is like a wheel where discipline is a spoke (architecture, structural, sustainability, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, interiors). The outside is where the work starts, the inside is well defined and complete. We want it to be a linear process but it is not, its more like a spiral. You gradually work your way towards a common goal, sooner or later crossing over each discipline along the way.”

  5. That rss feature on your blog here is splendid, you should tell more folks about it in your next post. I haven’t noted it for the first couple of times, now I’m using it every morning to check on any updates. I’m on a very slow dial-up link in Australia and it’s rather discouraging to sit there and wait for such a long time ’til the page loads… but hey, I just found your rss page and added it to the Google Reader and there you are… I’m always up-to-date! Well pal, keep up the good work and make that rss button a little bigger so that other people can enjoy that as well 😛
