How to Find Architectural Ideas

Eight strategies I use to find architectural ideas. Do you find the blank page as terrifying as I do? I’m starting a new project and I thought I’d use this video to talk about how I deal with this and precisely how I search for new ideas for my architecture.
I discuss in detail:
– Bisociation
– Trusting the design process
– Embracing constraints
– Inventing deadlines
– Doing the opposite (anti-project)
– Subtracting to solve
– Stealing (like an artist)
These are just a few of the design hacks I use to help grease the creative wheels and instill the confidence I need to keep moving forward. What’s great is these techniques work for a whole host of disciplines and creative fields, it isn’t exclusive to architecture.
