Industrial Design Or Architecture

I recall when a Friend of mine told me he'd like to Study Industrial Design, the first thing that came to my mind was 'what the hell is that?' Funny enough, he didn't even know what it meant, but because the term 'Design' was there, that was why he wanted to study it.
I had to do a lil Research from Wikopedia to find out the meaning and I discovered that they are very Creative  but 'Inconsiderate' People. Erm, don't get me wrong, industrial design is one  Very Great Course for the Very Creative Person: infact, Industrial Design sometimes, require a higher level of Creativity than Architecture.
A very obvious Relationship exist between Industrial Design and Architecture: this is the Application of Creativity in design.

For the Records, DESIGN is the creation of objects and places having practical functions which are intended to be looked at or used.
CREATIVITY can be defined as the development of ORIGINal Ideas to solve practical problems.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN can be defined as the use of both applied art and applied science to improve the aesthetics, ergonomics, functionality, and/or usability of a product, and it may also be used to improve the product's marketability and even production.

Back to the issue, the Industrial Designer is one who takes into consideration issues we Architects also consider, but the differnence between we and them is the ORDER at which those considerations are taken.
Let me explain, the Basic Issues that MUST be put into consideration before any work is designed are:
-Functionalty and
Both Careers do put into use these Factors but where they differ is in the Order to which they are applied.
For instance, we Architects consider in this order:
-Economics: this comes first because we Architects design for people-most of which are not extra Rich,therefore we need to put into consideration the Budget we are given an Make the best of it.
-Function: lemme put it this way, guys,who will you prefer for a Wife:a beautiful girl with that's not Smart or a 'Not so beautiful' but smart Girl?
The answer is obvious!
So in the same vein, a beautiful building or design that is not Functional is "(@@#%>"<<whatever that means!
-Aesthetics: If Aesthetics wasn't a requirement for Architecture, then Engineers would have more rights to believe that they are better than we Architects.
Aesthetics is Beauty,Full stop! This however dwells on some Boring things tho' known as Principles of Architecture.
So, every Design MuSt be Beautiful, or it's just some other Engineers' work!

For Industrial Design on the other hand, the Order they make use of is:
They make use of this order because most of the time, Industrial Designers (obviously) design for Industries, so there is not much of a Money issue.
They design products to be sold, so first, it has to be beautiful so as to attract Customers/Consumers, it then has to be Functional before the issue of Price comes in.

More so, Industrial Designers just design! The effects of their design is the Headache of the Developers. For example, an Industrial Designer can design a Car, but the Mechanical Engineers will them have to Brain storm do as to see how the Engines and the rest fits into that design.

So if you have industrial Design in mind as your Career Choice, I'd say you should go ahead-if you're sure it's you're calling.
...and yeah,you're Welcome.

The Usefulness Of CAD

Computer Aided Designs (CAD) refers to the use of Softwares in a computer to produce drawings / designs.

Before the Advent of CAD, Good Architects have been making good drawings, but the problem was that it took a pretty long time to have that drawing completed especially if it's a work that involves a lot of Details.

This posed a challenge as no Construction work can start except he architect is done with his design. More so, the use of Repetitive patterns can cause a problem because there is a high possibility of Inconsistency being revealed as such patterns if being drawn.

So, Generally, there have been Limitations in Hand drawings; for I instance, if an Oil Rig is to be designed, how in the World does the Architect want to archives that-hand drawn??? It will take 'Forever' before he will be done with it.

The advent of CAD however, has brought a drastic Change to the World of design on its own: instead of one having to waste 2-3 days working on a Design for a Residential Building, he can have it completed in a day with a 3-D Rendering image of the Design to Complement!!'
That came out recently tho', because it can be said for CAD or any other thing whatsoever that hasn't undergone improvements before reaching the level of development and Flexibility when it comes to human use that it is now.

Not withstanding, the issue is, one has to first learn the Software before he can make use of it. The good thing however is, the softwares are related to the Architectural field, so all one has to do is to find that tool with the ability to do that job he'd have done with his hands, and use his mouse-instead of his hands- to perform that operation.

I usually told my Students while I was instructing them on the use of AutoCAD, that CAD generally is a 'Lazy Tool'. The Laziest Of them I know of is ArchiCAD.
ArchiCAD is an Architectural Software that aids the production of Architectural Drawings with great ease! Insomuch as you are creating your plan, a Section, Elevation, and 3-D view of your drawing is automatic created for you!

The commonest CAD software is AutoCAD and it is commonly called the Mother Of All CAD Softwares: this is because most users of other CAD softwares ( not restricted to Architectural CAD Softwares)sometimes move their drawings to AutoCAD for Finishing Touches.

In Summary, CAD has generally proven to give a Better end result to our designs than Hand Drawings. This is because it(CAD) eliminates errors in the process of producing your drawings.

It's Obvious: CAD use is Better than Hand a Drawings...You're Welcome.

Nigerian Comtempoary Architecture-BOI

The Bank Of Industry's Buiding at Abuja is another interesting Structure and it was designed by Seun Oduwole of Brown inQ. 

Sky Scraper City Has This To say which I've modified by eliminating future tenses with present tense since the Building is now Finished:

The building concept was inspired by the shape and dynamism of an eye. Visibility
and vertical connectivity were integral to the idea. a desire to depart from the traditional office configuration of masses of segregated spaces, bad lighting and poor space planning.

The elliptical shape of our floor plan allows the office space to revolve around a very
generous central atrium. The glazed atriumacts as a focus internally for the building & plays a large part in the environmentalstrategy of the building.

Internally, the range, depth and quality of the finishes reflects the identity and integrity of the organisation and meets the aspirations of the client.
 The building has become a statement of Bank of Industry’s position as one of the leading corporate organisations in Nigeria.

Designed by Seun Oduwole of Brown inQ, construction was executed by local firm SDP. 

The building has been standing since June, 2009.

Nigerian Contemporary Architecture-GT Banks

Anyone who has seen the 'Wonderfulness' of any GT Bank Branches in Nigeria, will JUST have to look again the second time-no matter how much the person claims to hate Architecture.

Am not am exception (I am A Lover of Architecture tho'), but I find myself still looking at the GT Bank branch Building that is closest to my house and still end up finding it as interesting g as the first time I saw it.

It's quite interesting when Architects start to think 'outside the Box'. It's seems the GT Bank Group have just made the design of 'Crazy' Structures as part of their branding.
I'd have loved to know the Architect for the Bank, but when I did my lil research, I found out that it's actually different Archie Companies that take charge of different bank-branch project,and they still come up with the same crazy designs!

Some of the GT Bank Architects include:
-Temidayo David Ogunremi
-Formwork Limited
-Nicolas Tye Architects (foreign Architects)
-Oladapo Abejirine 
-3D World Consultants
-James George

GT Bank, Lawanson Branch

To me, the Lawanson Branch seems to make the most Promulgated of all the GT Bank designs. Sky Scaper City has this to say:

"Architecture has the potential to do much more than just delineate
spaces for human activities, in truth; architecture can create
excitement and bring new energy to a community. That much did the
design sleuthe find out while chatting with James George on his self
styled ‘twist cube’ design for the Guaranty Trust Bank branch in
Lawanson, Surulere, Lagos; which has since completion become a head
turning spectacle in the ever bustling neighbourhood. It is not
always that you encounter a building that makes you look again,
especially in the seediest parts of Lagos, James George tells us why
and how he set out to do what he did with the building."

More Kudos, however, should be given to the Nigerian Architect who came up with the Brand design. 

Tis not only GT Bank tho', that has such crazy structures, a lot of the Buildings on the islands, mainlands, Abuja and other parts of the Country still got some interesting Buildings.

More coming your way soon.

Quality: What It Really Entails

The Advanced Dictionary and Thesaurus simply defines Quality as something, someone that is 'of Superior Grade'.
But unlike in English or General terms, Quality in Architecture cannot be defined categorically because some bodies and persons will have to access, and approve the Work as Quality work in their own Criteria before a building can Finally be viewed as Quality work.

According to Stephen Emmitt, the Author of Architectural Technology, he tries to make us understand that Quality in Architecture and Building generally is not exactly as we presume it to be.

"Each group's perception of quality will vary depending on their particular position in the development 'team'. Not surprisingly, there is a great deal of confusion when people talk about achieving quality in construction, despite a growing body of literature addressed a such issues. Usually the word 'quality' is used in a subjective manner, rather than in an objective sense that can be tested and benchmarked."he says.
"To confuse the issue further, provision of a Quality Service does not necessarily mean quality work, nor does a quality building necessarily have to be the product of a Quality Service. The two should however be inseparable (Maister 1993)."he also said.

In Conclusion, Cuff (1991) puts to argument the principal Judges of any buildings Quality:
1.) The Consumers, the Building Users, and the Public at Large.
2.) The Participants in the Design and Assembly Process,
3.) The Architectural Profession.

It's interesting to note that these three groups have different criteria for determining quality. So, if a building is to be perceived as 'Excellent', it must be perceived as Excellent by all three groups!

So, I believe I've made you understand that the way you might have been perceiving Quality in Architecture might have not necessarily been the way it should be perceived; but if you're still in doubt, you may consider reading Stephen Emmitt's Architectural Technology,page 12,13.

Embracing Psychology In Our Designs

It's really interesting how oft time, Architecture tends to bring together contrasting Concepts-even from other fields- to form a singular concept. The topic that I'd like to discuss is one of such Brought-in concepts.
Like I always say: Design Is Everything; Meaning, every good work(not only Architecture) are Designs.
So by Definition, Design is the Creation of Objects and Places having Practical Functions which are intended to be looked at or used.

Psychology on the other hand, as defined by Simon Norris,
(a design consultancy that combines psychological insight with design) is “the science of behavior and the mind". When design and behaviour match, the design will be superior,” he explains.

So, from these two definitions, one can easy conclude that Psychology of Design has to do with the way design relates with Human Behaviors.

However, today’s use of psychology in design needs to go beyond those basic theories learnt at college, believes Andy Budd, founding partner and managing director at digital design consultancy Clearleft. Understanding of cognitive behaviour, for instance, can hugely affect a design, and tools such as Stephen P Anderson’s Get Mental Notes card deck can help designers apply psychology to the creative process.
“To be a good designer in today’s society, you need to have an understanding of psychology, human behaviour, and the little shortcuts, the little quirks, in the way people operate,” he says. “Then you can use them to make it easier for people to engage with your products.” 

From the Audi A3 Advert, the designer intentional placed the text using that particular Font style so as to force the Viewer to slowly read each words instead just glossing around it. This advertising concept tends to leave a more lasting impression concerning the product in the viewer's mind.
Great design requires great psychology, agrees Simon Norris; I am also in agreement to this fact in that we design mainly for Humans but before we design, we have to understand the way Humans will relate to that design. If we can get that understanding, it will make it easier for us to design what Humans will like.

Paul Davies, who was a psychologist before becoming a designer, runs psychology-led design consultancyBehaviour, also believes that an understanding of behaviour can make design more effective. “Psychology has a huge impact,” he argues. “Unlike artists, designers have to make something for effect; an artist can start a project without a brief, but a designer has to have a purpose and they have to do that for a particular audience.” 

Overtime, Psychology has played an important role in the design of Structures. For instance, a Credible Example will be James Lind's Article on Designing for Autism(Autism is a Psychiatry term that some individuals possess that involves the absorption with the self, an inability to treat people as people.)
In his article, he puts off the ideologies that the Royal College of Physicians and the British Academy thought was the cure to Scurvy and made them understand-after conducting his test- that Fresh Fruit was indeed the Cure.
More importantly, through his Article, we were made to understand that in our design, we are made to understand that design truest affects behavior, sensory regulation, and/or social integration.

Another instance will be in the Health Sector: 
Hospital walls are usually covered in colors such as white, green and blue. There is an explanation behind these choices and it has to do with the psychological effects these colors have.

White is the most common color to be seen on a hospital wall. And that is due to the peaceful and calm mood it provides. Other reason for choosing it is the fact that it denotes cleanness. It implies sterility, which has the effect of making patients feel reassured. This is also why doctors and nurses wear white uniforms.

Blue and green are considered to be the most relaxing and refreshing colors, promoting peaceful atmosphere which encourages concentration. Designers, psychologists and feng-shui experts, they all tend to consider that shades of blues and greens make us fell calmer, more balanced and less emotional. Because green has a calming effect on our nerves, hospital waiting rooms and even psychiatric wards are painted in this color. And surgeons wear green scrubs for the same reason. As for blue, it has often been noticed that children in pain are put in hospital rooms painted in light blue due to its healing effect it conveys.
Article Source:

One of the common features in The Design of Churches, which is under Christian Architecture, is the use of High ceilings which creates this Feeling of Humility or Reverence before God. That's Psychology and Design in an Inter-play here.

Many More instances exist in the use Psychology in next time you want to design, think of how Human will relate to your design: if the Relationship is Positive, then you're on the right track.

The Complexity Of Simplicity

A Simple Plan of A House

The English People will call my Topic am Oxymoron.
I do not claim to know everything about this Topic tho'-and I don't believe any one does- but I do know that a good understanding of the Concept is enough for any Designer to use as a Basis for his design-any kind of design(not necessarily Buildings).

Simplicity as Defined by Apple during their introduction of their IOS 7-which I use- is Basically Bringing Order To Complexity.

If you've looked closely to notice, you'd find out that the Masterpieces of Architecture, Landmarks, and Great Designs usually follow a Form, a simple form.
Taking the Burj Al Arab Hotel for example, as complex as the Hotel looks, the basic Idea was just to design a building that can withstand the prevailing ocean winds; then he thought of a Yatch Form Design. Every other complexities there rests and follows the simple Yatch concept.

But the problem now is, people usually Assume that Big Peojects must have Big Designs to go with them; then they start to think! Think!! Think!!! And only few get lucky to come up with something good at the end, while the others come up with mediocre designs or nothing at all!
They fail to understand that, the 'Harder' or complex the project design is, the more simple concept it should follow.

So, when next you want to design something 'Big', start small! 
For instance, if it is a house, draw a Box.
Make out holes for doors and windows...of there's going to be a pool in the house, let it be close to the Master Bedroom. Remove the wall demarcating the master bedroom and the Pool,replace it with a see through glass. 
Use white as the list prevailent color...think I'll stop here because am sure your getting the picture already....

Just remember, before you want to start a design, think Simple!

The World's Coolest Car Parks

I usually say to myself that Design is Everything!
This has been proved true again in that even Car parks have been made to become land marks and Masterpieces of Architecture. See some of them from around the world below.

Charles Street Car Park, UK

Known by locals as the 'cheese grater', Charles Street Car Park in Sheffield was designed by Allies and Morrison Architects on the site of an old Yorkshire Grey pub. The building has identical panels angled in various directions to give it a unique look and has a capacity of 520 parking spaces spread over ten floors. At first glance it appears as an apartment block when the jagged cubed building is in fact the most modern, cutting-edge car park in the area.

Parking des Celestins, France

This car park in Lyon won the award for Europe's most remarkable car park renovation in 1996, after the designer succeeded in getting light into the car park which goes far underground. The central core of the car park is a light well lit from the street above and a vast mirror sits at the base of the well, rotating and reflecting light around the seven levels. The ground level has a periscope which allows passers-by to view the cavernous space below.

1111 Lincoln Road, USA

This design masterpiece is a unique and striking landmark in Miami and was described by its designers Herzog & de Meuron as "the most radical work they had ever done". 1111 Lincoln Road resembles a house of cards and offers panoramic views of the South Beach area - not bad for a place to leave the car, eh? The open-air structure with no exterior walls features varying floor heights and has even become a go-to structure for architects and photographers looking for inspiration.

Car Park Plaza, Spain

Designed by Teresa Sapey Estudio, Car Park Plaza in Valencia is all about colour and fun, with sustainability and functionality in mind. Graphics cover the wall and portray various parts of the city while indicating the route and the time it takes you to walk there (blue represents water, red is for the cultural spaces and orange reflects leisure activities). Low-energy neon lights trace arrows to guide drivers and a picture of a descent downstairs created with LED lights marks the pedestrian access.

Veranda, Netherlands

Dutch architect Paul de Ruiter's Veranda car park in Rotterdam features sloping runways in the middle of a trapezium-shaped floor plan, meaning cars can move in a spiral upwards or downwards around the centre. The facade was composed of horizontal strips of aluminium, alternated with small strips of mirror glass and from the inside it acts as a diffuse screen admitting daylight and providing a fragmented view of the outside world.

Many more remain tho'. You can find it (with many Thanks) from

Nigeria's 'Floating' School

What a refreshing idea!! Now this is the kind of architecture that excites me, it may not be a huge 25 floor hotel complex, or a luxury mansion or shopping centre, but it responds to the majority. The very same people who are neglected in Nigeria, by the politicians, the economy and the built environment. The people of Makoko are street-smart, which is ironic since a vast majority of them live on water, however they are very ingenious in the ways that they are able to maintain their livelihoods in Makoko, therefore it only makes sense that in respone to their culture, that the architecture is not only unique but reflects the Makoko way of life.

A floating school designed and built by NLÉ, a practice founded by Kunlé Adeyemi who is Nigerian born and raised is pictured above, composed mainly of timber and protected in a corrugated roof. More info on Adeyemi:

"Adeyemi studied architecture at the University of Lagos where he began his early practice, before joining the world renowned Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in 2002. At OMA, working closely with founder Rem Koolhaas for nearly a decade, he led the design, development and execution of numerous projects in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Among these projects were the award winning Samsung Museum of Art, the Seoul National University Museum, NM Rothschild Bank in London, Shenzhen Stock Exchange tower in China, Prada Transformer in South Korea, Qatar National Library, Qatar Foundation Headquarters and the 4th Mainland Bridge and master plan in Lagos. Adeyemi was responsible for critical stages in design and realization of these projects. This involved leading OMA’s design team, coordinating a diverse global network of stakeholders and experts collaborators, including Arup for Engineering and Davis Langdon (AECOM) on cost matters."

"Nearing the completion of Makoko Floating School, NLÉ and Makoko community marked this moment with a public preview and cultural celebration on March 2, 2013. The event was attended by Mrs. Ade Mamonyane Lekoetje, the Country Director of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), as well as representatives of Lagos State Government, UNHabitat, SCCU, LMDGP, the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Makoko community, leaders, press, friends, NLÉ staff, international collaborators and a wide range of supporters from Nigeria and beyond. With over 200 people on board the Floating School, the 'boat' remained steady while the event rocked - keynote speeches, drinks, food, music, dancing and exciting cultural performances marked this memorable day!"

More details about this project:
"PROGRAM: School, Community Building
AREA: 220 m2
STATUS: Finished
SUPPORT: United Nations Development Programme/Federal Ministry of Environment (AAP) & Heinrich Böll Foundation
TEAM: Kunlé Adeyemi, Lisa Anderson, Thijs Bouman, Leslie Ebony, Marije Nederveen, Segun Omodele, Adekunle Olusola, Chryso Onisiforou, Martin Oreoluwa, Berend Strijland & Monica Velasco

'Nigerian Architecture'-Is it Dead Yet?

I remember vividly how My Course Advisor in School, while I was still in my First year of Architecture School always expressed his disappointments over the fact that Nigeria doesn't have Architecuture which I strongly disagree!
Reason because, a Country or an area Architecture simply has to do with the obvious Patterns and Form which all Architectural a Works in that Place take that one can easily use to identify it; and If any one should see a Big House, (with roof almost as High as the House itself, twin duplex, security House), on Google, the person can easily conclude that that house can be found somewhere between   In Nigeria!

Wait, dont get me wrong, am not saying that Big Houses, Bigger Roof is officially and international recognized as Nigerian Architecture, my point is, as long as those kind of pattern of Architecture can be Indentified, what's stops it from being Oficially And Internationally Recognized?

Am intentionally not going to talk about our Traditional Architecture-at least not in this post- because we know that even tho' it is more recognized Internationally, I can say Categorically that it is Dead!(presently). No one wants to design houses with the design concepts late down by our Nigerian Ancients; every Architects dreams of getting that Contract to design a Skyscraper in Spain, Switzerland or in some other big Developed country..,#sad.

What they fail to understand is, there would never be Originality in our work if we try to Emulate the Western World and their Comtempoary Architecture. We'l just end up over working ourselves and coming up with an 'UnOriginal' Project.

My Concluding statement would be that we still learn Contempoary Architecture( because the world is moving, and you JUST have to keep in touch so as not to be too Backdated) and also learn Nigerian Traditional Architecture. Then try to use your Creative mind to Synchronise the two Architecture Genre, and am sure, you'll come out with a better work than you think.

Reviews by Architecture Critics on The World's 7-Star Hotel

Weird as it may, even the great Burj Al Arab Hotel got criticisms from Archirects. It's actually normal for even spectacular works to be criticized but this too? The criticisms however, are not largely negatives tho', read them below...

Burj Al Arab has attracted criticism as well "a contradiction of sorts, considering how well-designed and impressive the construction ultimately proves to be."[23] The contradiction here seems to be related to the hotel’s decor. "This extraordinary investment in state-of-the-art construction technology stretches the limits of the ambitious urban imagination in an exercise that is largely due to the power of excessive wealth." 

Another critic includes negative critiques for the city of Dubai as well: "both the hotel and the city, after all, are monuments to the triumph of money over practicality. Both elevate style over substance."[23] 

Yet another: "Emulating the quality of palatial interiors, in an expression of wealth for the mainstream, a theater of opulence is created in Burj Al Arab … The result is a baroque effect".[23]

Architects Vs Engineers (1)

It is also obvious the fact that all Buildings/ Landscapes made use of during those Ages had both Form(which gives the aesthetics) and Function(Utility).

The Engineers sadly enough believe that they are more impirtant than we Architects when it comes to Building Construction. This is because we have given them a reason to think and say so, when in real sense, that is not true!

The Job of the Engineers to build Structures is important; they are the ones that bring all buildings/structures/machines Etc drawn out by an architect or Designer to Real Life.

But come to think of it: if the Architect doesn't give the Engineer anything anything to Build, what will he(the Engineer) build? 

More so, unlike the Engineer, an Architect can get a job to both Design and Build. This gives him an upper hand in the sense that he can Legally get a Contract to both design and Supervise the Construction of small Projects.

In addition to this, despite the advent of Project Management and all, the Architect is most cases is still the Leading Consultant in Big Building Projects. Reason is obvious: it's the Architects' Design, he has to be there to ensure that everything goes as he has planned!

Generally, it's quite annoying to hear when Engineers come around and start tlrantig that they are better than we Architects. No doubt they are good, but they can never be better than us.
