This paper presents a ‘learning by doing’ workshop approach for integral building design. The intention is to improve the collaboration in the conceptual design phase between design team members of different disciplines: e.g. architecture, structural engineering, building physics and building services. The set-up of the workshops used to implement and to test the theoretical approach are presented as well as the experiences of the participants. The project was done in close cooperation with the professional societies with in the building design field. More than hundred experienced professionals participated in the workshops. The workshops have become part of the permanent professional training program of BNA (Society of Dutch Architects) .
