Trying to cross a conceptual divide...
Design is a visual intelligence.
It is a different way of thinking.
It resists spoken language
as well as "opens up" critically
taken for granted structures
in every day life.
I have attached an image.
It is not of "a wall" like you have asked
Like I have proposed and spoken of.
I looked back at my proposal.
I wrote - "line/wall"
We spoke of it as "a wall"
because in commerce
It is "a wall."
The manufacturer calls it "wall stone."
"Wall construction" will be the process we follow;
in this sense
It is a wall.
But in my design
It isn't a wall but a line.
It is a solid form that creates order.
That in speaking of it as "a wall"
It gives the impression that it is
"An add on" or
As if we are working from a menu
And adding ornaments as we choose.
Yes. It is a line item on a proposal.
But this is to help understand how we arrive at the value of the job.
We may speak of breaking things up into production phases - "plants" and "wall;
But the design is one whole thing.
The wall relates to the maintenance and care of the garden.
The wall does the ordering
in place of the manicuring hand of the gardener.
It is an investment.
Its a machine.
