The term “design philosophy” may sound really vague and open ended, but for a complex project of this scale with multiple interdependencies, it is important to strategize a design plan in order to stay on track. So, what actually is a design philosophy? Well, it’s certainly not about Confucianism or Advaita Vedanta. Simply put, it is how you envision the design to develop and evolve in stages. Technically, design philosophy defines the course of design – from conceptual sketches at brainstorming sessions to trade off studies that narrow down options. From developing a preliminary design leading to a final detailed design after multiple iterations based on simulations, to prototyping which finally leads to integrated fabrication and testing.

There isn’t much of heavy lifting required, for the most part this needs to be a “Media oriented expedition, exploration” unless we get some serious scientific payload to carry.
