Communication and Efficacy Between Diverse Design Teams of Architects and Engineers
This study examines the characteristics in communication and effectiveness in diverse design teams of architecture and engineering students when working together on a conceptual design. The two professions of architecture and engineering have different design values, which can lead to more effective solutions but may also hinder convergence on a final design and create inequality in communication.
This study presents a design experiment that analyzes conversational engagement and searches for instances of dominating behavior in discipline diverse teams, while determining if more engaged, egalitarian communication leads to better designs.
