Introduction

This paper will be looking into two main factors. These factors are regarding the role which is played by the
beliefs or preferences or assumptions of the individual designers in decision making for design as well as
on the subject of the way an architect constructs the problems which he or she chooses to solve. In this
paper these questions will be answered on the basis of two papers which are following:

  • On design ‘problematization’: Theorising differences in designed outcomes by Steve Harfield, and
  • The Function of Creativity and Innovation in Architectural Design Management by Danfulani Babangida Idi, Khairul Anwar Bin Mohamed Khaidzir and Fahimeh Zeari.
  • Discussion
    Personal values, beliefs and the process of decision making in nay profession is linked and the former affects the latter to some significant degree without any exception. The personal values which consist of the beliefs, preferences or assumptions of the decision maker invariably determine the objectives and end results in any scenario. Even architecture is not free from this bias, if we may call it so. In this field also all of these factors affect the individual designers in their decision making for design. As has been mentioned by Harfield (2007) as far as the architecture is considered the personal projection of the designer he or she
    on the problem has to be identified. After all, the objectives which are usually chosen by a professional are often external expressions of the personal value of the person and in the same way decision making is also done on the basis of the core values of the individual.
