THEORY

"Smart Project" is an advanced and integrative approach to associate architectural production with the current information age. It is based on synthesizing all the data on producing architecture.

how many aspects have impacts on a project?

to understand deeply the factors that affect a project we need to take our attention and focus on a ‘moment’ in a project process , the tension, potential & knowledge of project lies in the ‘moment’ of project, i.e. in the core of a project process, the importance of this formula is to recognize first, ‘the others’, i.e. what are excluded or disregarded in the project, then time (project process) and teamwork

the 'moment' of project

each component has its own speed to involve into the specific ‘moment’ of project and also has its own potential to affect this specific ‘moment’

which part or parts will guide the process ?

a staircase?

a gutter?

a stone?

an environmental input?

a standart for handicapped people?

 

which part or parts will be the main orienter of the project process in the equation?

 

or all of them in a new, smart ‘equilibrium’ ?

our research on the moment of project, helps new components; new actors, new materials, new aspects, etc. to be integrated and be interrelated in the project, our research is to find new intelligences and knowledge

belonging to inclusive project processes,

i.e. smart project

an inclusive moment of project carries more than architecture

 

Join "in search of smart project" and be informed
