Thank you for this article, Max. Really love your definition for Design Practice, especially the emphasis on the concept of ‘True, Real & Ideal’.
I am actually working on a framework called Story Architecture which I believe can be considered a Design Practice but may require a lot more literature to be developed. Believe it or not, you just took out a writer’s block I was facing for a while.
Do give it a read (on my profile). Would love to get your thoughts on it too.
