Leading research into architectural design management is the CIB’s working committee W096 Architectural Management. CIB-W096 was officially established in 1993, following a conference on ‘Architectural Management’ at the University of Nottingham in the UK. Since this time the commission has been active in the area, with regular international conferences, meetings, published conference proceedings and other publications. CIB-W096 brings together researchers and practitioners concerned with the whole life cycle of uilding and construction projects. Recently the members of the working group have concentrated on achieving value for stakeholders and this work led to a focus on integrated design teams and improved communications. Active working areas are; revaluing design, communicating design, inclusive design, design management, design integration, design management education and revaluing architectural practice - all with an underlying sustainable agenda. In addition to the publication of peer reviewed conference proceedings the commission has produced the book Architectural Management: international research & practice (Eds. Emmitt, Prins, Otter, 2009, Wiley-Blackwell, Oxford), which provides a state of the art report into the rapidly evolving field of architectural management. One of the most topical issues to be dealt with by CIBW096 concerns information technologies and building information modeling, the theme of this, the commission’s 24th, conference. Architectural design processes are iterative processes in which designing and decision making are interwoven. Demands, wishes and concerns of clients and stakeholders for a beautiful, well functioning and sustainable building need to be fully understood and effectively communicated within the temporary project team. The focus of architects, managers, advisors and engineers has evolved from the project to responsibilities for the entire life cycle of the building. This is set in an age of rapid advances in digital technologies and changing responsibilities. This conference explores applications of architectural management using all types of electronic media for creating, communicating and realizing design in a variety of different contexts; as well as addressing long running themes within the architectural management knowledge domain. This proceedings contain 27 peer reviewed papers within the conference topics: -Smart, lean and intelligent architectural design management; -Application of collaborative technologies, such as building information modeling (BIM); -Integrated (sustainable) design solutions and integrated working practices; -Managing roles and legal responsibilities for design in a digital age;- Global versus local challenges for architecture
