The Importance of Editing in Design


 A manuscript from Orwell’s 1984 to support my point

To come anything near perfection; Architecture, design, music and all the other visual arts must go through extensive editing processes.

Meaningful art which can have a chance to withstand the test of time could only be achieved if the author has numerously and carefully edited it on different days with different mindsets.

That’s why to ask an architect to quickly finish a project may hinder the long term design values of a project. Let him contemplate and take his time.

    I agree 100% with your comment about editing a creative work of art especially in regards to architectural design.
    Infact, in “Art of Architecture” the editing process should continue during the building phase.
    In other words the Architect should totally immerse himself during the construction phase and be allowed to make changes that will improve the final design realization.
    We should keep in mind that “Architecture is never finished until the wall paint has dried”.
