Thoughts on Integrated Design

In 2006, Bob Berkebile, FAIA, Laura Lesniewski, AIA and myself co-authored a paper on sustainable design + BIM for the 2006 AIA conference on Integrated Practice. We examined "what the authors characterized as the ultimate design challenge, integration between nature and human nature, between the built and natural environments, and also technology."
There were 10 papers that were presented during that conference and now, 3 years later the AIA is touching base with all the authors of the different papers to see if their views had changed. One by one, they are interviewing the authors and presenting their works as podcasts. Other authors include Thom Manye, Robert Smith, Markuu Allison, and Chuck Eastman. It's good stuff.

Find them here.

Ours is released this Friday.
