Blog Prompt #5

Design functionality is the key to success. Everything surrounding everything has the potential to be flawed or successful in it's function. Designers must accept their mistakes and grow from then, rather than pawning the faults to a different source. Not everyone in life can constantly make the right choices, and this leaves many in unhealthy/helpless situations. Im not positive but I believe Thomas Fischer has stated that designers should have a better attachment to their creations as if it's a lifelong client. This could potentially solve the problem of buildings, communities, and cities from the depressions caused by the lack of upkeep in their original intentions for the designs. I have attached a link to a blog site in which the author is as tired of poor housing as I am, but the author focuses more on the lifestyle, where I begin at the source (the design).
