Abstract

Building design involves multi-disciplinary design teams in order to integrate contributions to solve the complex design task from different disciplines such as architecture, construction, building physics and building services. To support this highly complex process the Integral Design method is used as a framework for structuring the design process and the reflection on the design process itself. By using multi-disciplinary morphological overviews, a combination of mono-dicipline morphological charts, communication can be structured between design team members. Also the morpholocal overviews offer the possibility for reflection on the design results by the design team members. With the help of the C-K ( Concept-Knowledge) theory of Hatchuel and Weil, we especially focus on the generation of new concepts / new design knowledge. This method was tested in workshops for professionals from the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects (BNA) and the Dutch Association of Consulting Engineers (ONRI). During the last 5 years over 250 professionals have participated in these workshops.
