Abstract

A place is not made from a building alone; it is made from that which takes place in the building, and the people who inhabit the building. Therefore, architects must begin to apply their creative and analytical thinking skills to all facets that make up a place. Architects can begin interconnecting systems in the world to make it a better place. This type of Design Thinking will lead architects to produce more than buildings. It will open opportunities in other fields that desire creative minds to better their organizations. The use of Design Thinking and Systems Thinking theories, is described in the Re-Vision of Bounds and Gillespie Architects, serving the company as a catalyst for cultural change and operational improvement. The combination of theory and practice will sustain the firm through constant learning and internal growth, making them a leader in the design profession.
