ln this paper we discuss the role of requirements in the design process, and the relationship between requirements and creativity. Starting with a brief outline concerning the different notions of the requirements and constraints that frame the creative design process, we propose an aporetic discussion scheme that points out the dialectical character of design requirements and constraints enabling creativity between openness and rigidity. Based on that model we discuss the possibilities and necessities designers face when trying to bridge the outlined polarities in their daily work. The concluding remarks are pointing out some questions and theses for further discussion.
