DETAILED DESIGN PROCESS
1. Preliminary design is elaborated exact dimensions.
2. Additional elements are designed, e. g., foundations, connections, modications to
existing buildings, utilities, etc

THE PIGEONHOLE PRINCIPLE
Suppose that a flock of pigeons flies into a set of pigeonholes to roost.
1. A perch on which domestic fowl or other birds rest or sleep.
2. A place with perches for fowl or other birds.
3. A place for temporary rest or sleep.
