opening How will stretch and movement be accommodated An architect would consider how many windows Wood frame or brick 5 Carry out the plandesign from plan to reality making a sample 6 Evaluate the planuse the criteria to judge the characteristics amp performance of the product to meet the goal 3 Respects of Design Functional 1 most important what the product must do or not do use structural knowledge to plan amp carry out the design then the decorative aspect must meet both the functional amp structural 0 Deals with how something works physically how it performs can refer to the whole or part Structural how they are put together how it will open and close most successful designs are often those that meet their functional criteria and purpose with the simplest form aggress both with

Formed when elements of design of apparel and the body blend with the elements of design of the surrounding environment Open boundaries are amorphous and blurry with no demarcation of the silhouette
