Abstrakt

In recent research of the construction industry, collaboration is referred to as a crucial aspect to deliver a project on time, within the predetermine budget and according to the expected level of detail (Bishop et al. 2008). This presentation will give an introduction to Knotworking as a method for collaboration among actors with various historical backgrounds. Knotworking is an Activity Theory based method developed by CRADLE at University of Helsinki on the basis of the method Big Room (CRADLE 2015). The agenda of Knotworking is to untie ‘knots’ within a specific project in a collaboration of various actors with an interest in the specific ‘knot’ (Engeström 2008). Moreover this presentation presents an analysis of contradictions within a Knotworking session of an interior décor project. The interior décor project is targeted a new building for Department of Civil Engineering at Aalborg University in Denmark aiming to generate an ownership among the users of the building.
Through this presentation the audience will discover advantages and disadvantages of the utilization of Knotowkring as a method for making interior décor at a Danish University. Moreover, the audience will notify Knotworking as a method for dealing with collaboration.
This presentation is targeted researchers working with collaboration among actors with various historical backgrounds and researchers with an interest in Knotworking.

The research will contribute to a novel context for utilizing Knotworking, which previously has been utilized in contexts as the library, hospital and construction industry. By investigating Knotworking in the context of interior décor through an analysis by activity theory systems, this research contributes to knowledge about contradictions within a Knotworking session and potential solutions to avoid these contradictions.
