Design/Build project delivery methods offer a ton of benefits to both architects and their clients. Architects skilled and interested enough to deliver services on the construction site are all the more informed the next time they sit at the drafting board. Clients who hire these architects don’t lose invested project knowledge when a set is handed over to a third-party contractor.
Professor Ford and I just presented “Simulating Paradoxes” at the ACSA Fall Conference. I am very proud of what we wrote. I am equally proud of the discussion we encouraged amoung our lovely peers.
My teaching schedule for the Fall has been set for some time now. And its pretty encouraging that a elective I wrote last Spring Survey of Parametric Design Tools for Architects has filled to capacity and has another semester to waitlist. I think I love teaching that class.
