In this work, the evolution of Sihwa dam in Ansan, South Korea is analyzed using a combination of three formal design theories: Axiomatic Design Theory, TRIZ, and User Centered Design. The presence and influence of coupling, conflict, and compromise in the three stages of the dam are used to explain some of the problems associated with Lake Sihwa. Affordances for the three stages of the dam are also discussed and a progression of non-ideality in design is proposed.
