The book focusses on:
- how parametric and generative design media can be coupled with and managed alongside Building Information Modelling tools and systems
- how the cross-disciplinary knowledge is distributed and coordinated across different software, participants and organizations
- the characteristics of the evolving creative and collaborative practices
- how built environment education should be adapted to this digitally-networked practice and highly distributed intelligence in design
The chapters address a range of innovative developments, methodologies, applications, research work and theoretical arguments, to present current experience and expectations as collaborative practice becomes critical in the design of future built environments.
