Abstract

Within the building industry there is a clear need for more sustainable solutions, with as ultimate goal Zero Emission Buildings. This makes building design more complex. Building design transfers from a mainly architect led process into a multi-disciplinary design team process to cope with the growing complexity of the design tasks. A supportive design method was developed in cooperation with the Dutch professional organizations of architects and consulting engineers. The design method provides overview and helps to structure the communication between design team members. The design method is focused on the creation of solutions in the conceptual phase of building design. After testing the method in workshops as part of a training program in industry, the design method was transferred and applied at the department of architecture for master students for their multidisciplinary Master project Integral Design. In the latest version of the workshops for students we introduced participation of professionals. The partnership with professional societies within the building industry led to the developed design method. This cooperation between professionals and students is an example for a kind of educational bridge for engineering education.
