Environmental Challenges in the Design Process : Qualitative Interviews with Eight Offices
Publication: Research - peer-review › Journal article
Present article is based on qualitative interviews with eight offices involved in the early conceptual stages of the design process. It investigates what experiences they have with their design process especially in relation to address environmental issues. The data from the interviews are analyzed through a coding scheme that focuses on what experiences they have in the early stages of the design process with the brief, the environmental concerns and the challenges they meet in this work. From the interviews it is seen that the direction today is to have an increased focus on a multidisciplinary design process where the collaboration and broad field of experiences the participants have is needed to be able to address and inform the design process in connection with the environmental concerns from the beginning.
