Architect practice in transformation; Communicating design values, design concepts and storytelling in design- and building processes.


Design- and building projects are getting more and more complex and demand a closer interaction of a broader field of expertise. This requires developed

interdisciplinary design processes and developed communication methods to support efficient team collaboration.

Creating strong architectural design concepts and develop storytelling in design processes can mingle different perspectives and communicate common goals between different stakeholders in interdisciplinary design- and building processes.

This PHD will investigate how architects are developing their competence, methods and tools to communicate design values in the design- and building processes.

It will study how strong architectural design concepts and storytelling can be used to increase design values and develop design- and building processes.
