Directed-Build: The Architect as Choreographer

Dates: 
Aug 08 2014

Description:

If design matters, then building matters. This day long, interactive workshop explores workflows and information management between the office and the job site in architect led design-build or, more accurately, “directed-build,” projects. The directed-build process is the architect as a single-source responsibility for the design, construction, and commissioning of buildings as a single-source responsibility. When architects are also construction managers, managing design intent with constructed reality becomes a fluid and responsive process. Design creativity is thus responsible and construction craft accountable.

The workshop will provide case study illustrations of trade-based drawing packages, on-site construction management practices, and the logistic requirements for architects to reclaim control of the building process.  In a charrette phase of the workshop, participants will complete an exercise in the planning, scheduling, and sequencing a small sample project according to the strategies discussed.
