"A representation of a design task, in the form of problem-setting, preceeds every process of architectural designing. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how designers use loose ends in problem setting as a major resource for the conception and consolidation of design solutions. The Brief as a Solution Space Relevant information pertaining to the problem is often stated in the form of a design-brief, which is handed out to the designer(s) at the outset of the design process. A typical well prepared brief includes givens, objectives and constraints both quantitative and qualitative. The designer is expected to pay careful attention to every item in the brief and respond to it in his solution. The brief, then, delimits the problem - within the "space" it creates a solution is sought."
