Effective teamwork across disciplines is essential to solve the technological and managerial problems associated with today's construction projects. This book promotes interdisciplinary design for the construction industry, and discusses the challenges and rewards involved. It contains contributions from many prominent figures representing different professional viewpoints, among them architects Ian Ritchie and Richard Saxon, engineers Sir Alan Cockshaw, Michael Dickson and Sir Jack Zunz and developer Peter Rodgers. Case studies provide illustrations and examples. The book also presents and reviews recent innovative experiences of education for interdisciplinary design both in the university and practice environments. Further, it includes summaries of best practice in the design process drawn from management studies and academic research. In its focus on the collaborative nature of the design process the book addresses the neglected areas of teamwork and communication. It offers numerous examples where this way of working has achieved outstanding architectural results and project success in line with the Latham and Egan agendas.

Biophilia is the theory that people possess an inherent affinity for nature, which developed during the long course of human evolution. In recent years, studies have revealed that this inclination continues to be a vital component to human health and wellbeing. Given the pace and scale of construction today with its adversarial, dominative relationship with nature, the integration of nature with the built environment is one of the greatest challenges of our time. In this sweeping examination, Stephen Kellert describes the basic principles, practices, and options for successfully implementing biophilic design. He shows us what is—and isn’t—good biophilic design using examples of workplaces, healthcare facilities, schools, commercial centers, religious structures, and hospitality settings. This book will to appeal to architects, designers, engineers, scholars of human evolutionary biology, and—with more than one hundred striking images of designs—anyone interested in nature†‘inspired spaces.
