Evolving beyond sustainability and design trends, this book details a design philosophy which incorporates human health and well-being, connectivity and collaboration, flexibility and adaptability, to further enhance human productivity and quality of life.
Design competitions bridge the gap between members of architecture firms and the public. Participation in competitions provides the public with an inside view of how firms stretch the bounds of their creativity. This creative and ambitious competition submission has captured audiences around the world both on paper and through presentation by Principal Manoj Dalaya, AIA. For this competition, a team was formed that represented all of KGD Architecture, from the newest staff members to the firm partners. All ideas were brought to the table and developed through a series of design charrettes. The best concepts were merged and finessed to form our final design. Internal social networking was used to share ideas and inspiration. Our process demonstrates the collaboration, technological interaction, and hierarchy-free work processes that will be supported by our office building of the future. Our design was supported by structural engineering provided by Arup, assuring that our office building of the future would indeed be possible. James G Davis Construction Company provided cost estimating services.
