Drawing boards

creativity

efficiency – are they

different domains?

I look at this magnificent concrete structure and think the architect has done a wonderful job. There were hundreds of people to support –civil engineers, technicians and labourers who implemented the architect’s ideas. Where does the creativity lie?

It must have taken some imagination to put the bricks together, and sequence the tasks. A cook needs experience and imagination to decide the intensity of heat, and the exact time an ingredient remains in the cooking medium.

Is creativity all about the drawing board?

who taught a lone ant

to store food for next season

to carry a leaf?
