    • Process of design
    • 1) statement of problem
    • 2) collection of data
    • 3) analysis of data
    • 4) program
    • 5) design concepts
    • 6) design development
    • 7) construction documents
  1. Design aspects
    • 1) circulation
    • 2) health
    • 3) adaptive
    • 4) cost
  2. Linear pattern
    • - single spine having one principal location
    • - limited by development of land
    • - useful where major circulation occurs between two points
    • - if length is reasonable, it can be economical form but lacks a focus and may become congested
  3. Axial pattern
    • - variation of linear pattern
    • - central axis, spine or mall around which structures are arranged
    • - allow for incremental development with relative ease and minor disruption however may become extended
  4. Radial pattern
    • - consists of central core
    • - appropriate when elements have common origin or destination
    • - somewhat inflexible
    • - compact and allows max of social interaction
  5. Grid pattern
    • - emphasis on flexibility
    • - simple, convenient, compact and suited for complex distribution flows
    • - can become monotonous unless it has several points of focus such as public spaces or buildings
  6. Precinctual pattern
    • - dispersed activities which may or may not have central focus
    • - allow growth development in any direction
    • - flexible, compact, efficient, often quit economical
  7. Determinants of form
    • - site-structure relationship
    • - site-form relationship
