Book "Distributed Intelligence in Design"

The long awaited book, based on the presentations and discussions which took place during the Distributed Intelligence in Design symposium, is now published by Wiley’s!

Distributed Intelligence refers to the interdisciplinary knowledge of a range of different individuals in architectural, engineering, and construction in different organizations, with different backgrounds and experience. The book discussed the media, technologies, and behaviors required to support their successful collaboration in design and production, addressing to the changing socio-technical climate in the architectural design world. 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.

The book covers (but not limited to):

  • 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
