Knowledge Sharing Strategies for Smart Architectural Development: Facilitating Interdisciplinary Collaborative Design

Public Deposited
Resource Type
  • The emergence of smart building technologies designed to detect and respond to changes in the built environment have inspired architects to consider the relationship between occupant and responsive environment (Di Christina, 2001) (Walter, 2015). Presently, architectural project teams have grown to incorporate specialized technologists to help integrate sensing, actuation, and data collection into the architectural program, yet differences in disciplinary understanding of design processes (Bektas, 2013) often lead to the failure of smart features (Meagher, 2014) and prevent smart buildings from achieving the full scope of established project objectives. This research presents an inquiry into how collaboration and knowledge sharing might be best facilitated among interdisciplinary smart architecture project team members through a series of design charrettes and card sorting exercises hosted using an online collaboration platform. Results demonstrate that while online collaboration platforms allowed for... (full abstract available in document)
