    Designers often don't feel comfortable with the concept of "inspiration". Ask about their influences or a latest project's muse, and you'll see many designers shy away, with fear of being labelled a copycat or unoriginal. "Good design originates from many straightforward parameters such as the budget, the client's wish-list, the adjacent context and available materials and technology," says Dr Matthew Bird, architect and senior lecturer at @monashada. "However, amazing design is the culmination of these parameters and an architect's creative dexterity – asking 'what-if' possibilities, asking more of the brief, and ultimately combining an intuitive derivative of subconscious inspirations collected from a curious mentality." We asked five leading designers to discuss the muses that have inspired recent projects.
