The Car Pattern Design Pattern „ Each pattern describes a problem which occurs over and over again in our environment, and then describes the core of the solution to that problem, in such a way that you can use this solution a million times over, without ever doing it the same way twice“
Patterns without Design Design Pattern = Solution to a Problem
Different solutions for the same problem Problem: How to get from A to B? Design Pattern = Solution to Problem in a context
Problem + Context –> Forces -> Solution “ It is based on the idea that every design problem begins with an effort to achieve fitness between two entities: the form in question and its context. The form is the solution to the problem; the context defines the problem.” (Alexander, 1964) A problem in different contexts raises different forces.
So...we know how to do it. Do we? ...these forms are bad solutions.
