Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering Summary

Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering by Clare Olsen (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, USA)

Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering focuses on team-building and problem-solving between architects and engineers to prepare you for working together in practice. It provides an overview and foundation for interdisciplinary collaboration so that you can create innovative proposals for optimization, performance, and aesthetic goals. It also shows you how to solve real-world problems and how to engage creatively with technological challenges so that you can be a productive member of any team.

The authors, an architect and an engineer, share guidelines learned from their experiences and observations on how to insure productive communication, engage in interdisciplinary discussions, and establish common goals and values. Throughout the book are many case study examples of architect and engineer collaborations--such as those between SANAA and Mutsuro Sasaki, Foster + Partners and Buro Happold, Steven Holl and Guy Nordenson, and SHoP Architects and ARUP. The book also includes a discussion about integrated project delivery (IPD) contracts and administration, so you'll be ready for better integration.

Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering Reviews

"Olsen and Sinead Mac Namara-an associate structural-engineering professor who is jointly appointed at Syracuse University's School of Architecture and Department of Civil Engineering-have seen synergy among architects and engineers. That was especially true with 10 case studies of successful collaborations they highlighted in their book, Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering." -Devinee Fitzgerald, Line/Shape/Space
