title Managing Risk in a Research-Based Practice as Projects Scale To Construction:A Case Study
source D. Holzer, W. Nakapan, A. Globa, I. Koh (eds.), RE: Anthropocene, Design in the Age of Humans - Proceedings of the 25th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, 5-6 August 2020, pp. 65-74
summary Research-based architectural practices often experiment along the bleeding edge of the new frontier of design and include developing methodologies unfamiliar to the construction industry. Successfully implementing the resulting research methodologies to an architectural scale requires careful consideration of risk management within a Design-Bid-Build construction project. How a firm manages the risk when scaling a research conclusion to an architectural scale is an essential aspect of assuring the success of the project. These considerations are particularly acute within firms whose research involves convoluted geometry. In the field of doubly-curved geometric material systems, the level of precision required to manage professional risk is commensurate with the level of geometric complexity. Adopting the mindset of a Medieval master mason's process within the context of twenty-first-century materials and processes can be a method toward a successful project. By performing well thought-out transfer procedures of digital data, resolving the fundamental challenges of fabrication, and including structural analysis as a part of the early design phases, experimental architectural expressions can be realized without extra financial risk to the designer.
