Conference paper


‘Partnering’ is the latest buzz word in architectural circles today, one manifestation of this being co-designing. The value of the variety in knowledge and experience that can, theoretically, be obtained from this experience has inspired a growing trend of collaboration in design between architects and other professionals of related areas (e.g., engineers, contractors, etc.), and, similarly, of participatory design, where clients and end-users are invited to take an active part in the design process. However, this growing trend, which tries to address the complex nature of architecture and draw all the parties involved out of the isolation of their own concerns, has encountered ever-growing difficulties in establishing itself within the professional circles of architecture and the building industry.
