the measure of plan
The concept of terminal design has been discussed occasionally on this blog. It needs constant clarification and refinement--hence, a perfect example of how the design of arguments and ideas is never terminal as long as there are humans alive in the universe. In architecture, putting a stop to the design process is a function of time and money, and it is the responsibility of the architect to know when to stop. Perfection is not achievable, and if a client emerges who claims to have infinite time and money, then the architect should walk away from the job. To be trapped in a cycle of endless revisions and studies is a hell that should be avoided.
