“Design should not dominate things, 
 and not dominate people –should help people.
 That is important.”

    In regards to your topic, ART VS. DESIGN; I would like to add my thoughts about the creation(Art) and problem solving(Design) in the design process. I asked myself what is the difference between problem solving and creating, and which one we use in the design process. However, if we start to use problem solving during the design process, that problem solving leads new architectural concepts. Discuss the idea that creating is not problem solving and that understanding the distinction between these two ideas makes all the difference to the results we get as designers. I think the fundamental difference between creating and problem solving is that in problem solving, we try to find a solution and an answer, and remove something we do not like or want; in creating, however, we try to make or bring something new (we like and want it) into existence through imaginative skill. For me there is no distance between problem solving and creating in the design process. I think that it is hard to separate these two things from each other. I believe that designers do these two acts together simultaneously, although in some cases,first we spend time on problem solving, reacting to circumstances, and then we create what we desire. In addition, creation needs an imagination and problem solving needs knowledge and information. In my view, creation likes finding a solution in a unique and new way. Personally, when I want to design something first I seek to imagine the final step (final production or solution) that it should be like, and then I begin to work. It is obvious that creating a new thing is more difficult than solving problems, but I think the most important thing in the design process is how we can use our creation efficiently and correctly in the problem solving process. Consequently, designers need to solve problems and create the future; they need to be good at doing both. Most designers, however, have much more focus on creating than problem solving.
