Interdisciplinary Team Learning in the Context of Integrated Design Studio

Publication: Construction Research Congress 2010: Innovation for Reshaping Construction Practice

Abstract

Scientific literature and practical experience point out fragmentation of the building design process as one of the reasons for ineffective design and construction processes. This paper proposes interdisciplinary team learning in the context of an integrated design studio as a successful approach for both: achieving sustainable design solutions and transforming disciplinary cultures into integrated practices. In a rather unique collaborative experience based on strategies from situated learning and activity theory, students with different design and construction backgrounds were placed in multidisciplinary (co-located) teams to work on a real architectural project with specific requirements for sustainability. This integrated design studio was timed in three intensive 2-day charrettes. A coherent digital environment for integrated design was proposed in order to meet the needs of the multidisciplinary teams. The results from this experience were very positive in respect to both individual and team learning.
