For many designers, bureaucracy is the enemy of creativity – the antithesis of what we are taught design should be all about. At best, it is seen as a necessary evil; boxes to be ticked, rules to be bent, red tape to be cut. But the creeping bureaucratisation of the design process, particularly in fields such as architecture and urbanism, means bureaucracy now accounts for the majority of a designer’s time. The more we struggle against it, the more we are bound in its web. By seeing design as a victim of regulations and legislation, the profession is reconciling itself to compromise. But if we learn to see bureaucracy as part of the design process, it can become a powerful form of design without drawing lines. How can bureaucracy be understood not as a constraint on creativity, but as a field for creativity in its own right?
