I didn't bother reading the rest of your post after you've mentioned
"if studio cant teach u to make ur fancy ideas a reality then to me, u are just
(i want to say wasting time... but i do recognise the creative juice that
happens here...)..... but yes, in a way, u are wasting time"
I personally think Design Studio is called DESIGN studio for a reason.
I'm not quite sure what you meant by designing something that can be built. You mean in terms of cost? Structurally? Client don't like crazy ideas?
If everything is designed based on what's buildable..then everything will be so boring. There won't be new innovations..no new technologies. I believe that in today's world, almost nothing is too impossible to be built. Even if there's a problem building something, this is where engineers/architects work their butt of to solve the problem.
Or..tone down cuz client thinks it's too wild? Then it's just a matter of you presenting your crazy ideas to the client..and this is where you convince them. Even if the idea is rejected...fine then. This is where the tone down comes in play. But at least you did try to sell out that lil crazy idea. What if the client buys that crazy idea? Then..don't you think you'll so darn happy when your crazy ideas get to be built? You will never know man! At least you get to say 'I've tried'.
Then again..I don't quite understand what you meant by designing something that can be built.
But hey..if students should design something buildable..why not have a subject in school called buildable building studio instead of design studio??
Almost everything and anything can be built.
