Engineering architectural creativity

Domer, Bernd (School of Engineering, Architecture and Landscape (hepia), HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

Technical mastery is only one condition for successful construction projects. Management skills should be considered as equally important. Architects and engineers are the backbone of project teams. When this team fails to work effectively together, project success is put at risk. Teaching and training of team and management skills in engineering and architectural education contributes to minimize this risk. It creates dynamics which will facilitate the application of innovative construction materials and methods for the benefit of the project. Introduction of those "soft skills" through an integrated teaching approach will foster joined up thinking and prepare students to deliver high quality projects during their professional career.
