The built environment has to become more sustainable. Principals experiment with different ways to stimulate Integral D0esign teams, in which designers from different disciplines start designing together almost from the same moment in the design process. The design competition session for the conceptual design of a sustainable school was put on video and analyzed by applying morphological analysis. This analysis is based on a functional transcript of the process and the transforming of that in to a morphological overview. That overview represents the interpretation of the design brief by the design team as well as the solutions known within the design team related to them. This analysis is done in two ways: one focusing on the process interactions and one more focusing on the functional aspects of the design process. Some results of the analysis are presented especially focusing on the difference between architects and engineers in the design process.
