COURSE OVERVIEW

Architecture requires resources out of all proportion to outcome surmises author—architects Stephen Kieran and James Timberlake in their 2004 book, “Refabricating Architecture.” Therefore, true triple bottom line — especially one that addresses the needs of those marginalized within society — doesn’t exist. So then, what does it mean to adapt our processes similar to other industries like automotive and aeronautics? And in doing so, we can create a common platform, effectively communicate design intelligence and unleashing innovating. In today’s presentation, we explore what it means to redesign our firms from the inside out, which ultimately allows our designs — our very products — to be lean themselves, thus revolutionizing the industry.
