This course explores the theme of creativity applied to architecture and design, delving into the many, varied aspects of the topic. Architectural firms WorkAC share the experience they have garnered from many decades designing
large buildings. Closely examining flagship past designs and future projects, the course offers valuable examples and the useful analysis tools that the firms have evolved during their successful professional pathway. We reveal the design and creative workflow behind the construction of many architecture and design projects. The firms offers insights and comments on their in-house creative process, from tangible experience at the highest levels of architecture, providing a forum for discussion and
a significant study opportunity for all architects keen to learn more about these two practices’ international-level creative process from close up.
These videos were created to provide new operational tools and foster greater knowledge about the architectural design process via:
- international architects’ operational experiences
- cross-references to international projects that required the development of creative ideas
- strategies and solutions for implementing innovation-led international projects
- knowledge about materials and technical tips and
tricks used in select case studies
