Opportunities and barriers of architect led design build projects

Deniz, Ayça
From past to today, technological developments have resulted in new systems in parallel with digital age. Innovations have been started to be replaced with the traditional solutions. Standardizations have also started to be renewed in accordance with the high technology and complexity of the projects. Under these circumstances, design and construction activities have been separated in the construction industry. As a result, alternative project delivery systems have been developed and selecting the right delivery system has gained importance depending upon the complexity of the projects The main objective of this study was to propose a model that supports architect’s leadership in design-build systems throughout an international airport project as a case study. Thus, construction industry will gain awareness for the organization structures in which architectural groups lead the other disciplines to achieve success in design-build systems considering time cost quality triangle. In this study, organization charts including project construction process and factors affecting design and construction activities were investigated. The matrix relationship in production level of the organization charts among the project disciplines has been analyzed. According to the evaluation of models reflecting the existing status, alternative models supporting architect’s leadership are proposed.


Collaborative building control: a conceptual mixed-initiative framework
Topak, Fatih; Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray (Taylor & Francis, 2021-6-22)
In the last two decades, automation systems have shown advanced developments and are widely adopted for various purposes in many fields. However, automation in buildings has not gained popularity and has a low acceptance level amongst the occupants. Decreased perceived control, ever-changing dynamic human needs, and standardized, one-size-fits-all approach in current automation systems lead to disharmony in human-machine coexistence. Although well-established continuous interaction between building control ...
StreamMARS: A Streaming Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines Algorithm
Batmaz, İnci (2019-12-14)
Computers and internet have become inevitable parts of our life in the 1990s, and afterwards, bulk of data are started being recorded in digital platforms automatically. To extract meaningful patterns from such data computational methods are developed in data mining and machine learning domains. Multivariate adaptive regression splines (MARS) is one such method successfully applied to off-line static data for prediction. In about last ten years, we face with the big data problem due to the steady increase i...
Designing in the Age of Network Society: The Role of Technology in Design Processes and Knowledge Generation
Bruna, Marco (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2017-6-15)
Architectural design in recent decades has measured itself with an unprecedented speed imposed by technological innovation, from which the Internet has emerged at a greater pace. To interpret correctly the changes that have ensued, it is essential to rule out any technological impetus by which these new conditions can now dictate related assessments in design processes. The ability to achieve new knowledge and produce endless combinations seems to lead to a path based on a shared work; it is no coincidence ...
Metadiscourse analysis of digital interpersonal interactions in academic settings in Turkey
Hatipoğlu, Çiler (null; 2019-08-20)
Rapid technological advances, efficiency and easy access have firmly established emailing as a vital medium of communication in the last decades. Nowadays, all around the world, particularly in educational settings, the medium is one of the most widely used modes of interaction between students and university lecturers. Despite their important role in academic life, very little is known about the metadiscursive characteristics of these e-messages and as far as the author is aware there is no study that has ...
Fundamentals of architectural design comparison to filmmaking
Çetin, Hasan Okan; Aytaç Dural, Tuğyan; Department of Architecture (2006)
The relation between architecture and cinema has begun with the first steps of the technology of moving images at the beginning of the 20th century and it has continued progressively until now by importing various intellectual, representational, and practical devices from each other in order to reconfigure their own systems of knowledge. In this investigation, the fundamental elements of architectural design and principles of their organization are used in the field of cinema as a methodological tool to ana...
