Design Through Dialogue by Karen A. Franck

Book Description

The book makes visible and comprehensible aspects of the briefing and design process by examining different, overlapping activities that take place: relating, talking, exploring/discovering, and transforming. Material for the book is drawn from interviews with practicing architects, outstanding examples of design and collaboration from different countries, and concepts and research in psychotherapy, architecture and design studies. The authors also refer to their own experiences in briefing and design, teaching, and research. Throughout the book, concepts and examples from practice are linked to design outcomes in built projects. As design projects are becoming increasingly complex and necessarily collaborative, Design through Dialogue joins other recent initiatives in architecture and building construction to further partnering relationships between architects and clients.
