Abstract

The increasing complexity of design makes it necessary to consider different ways to design projects. In connection with the Integral design research project for professional in the Dutch building industry, we developed an educational project, the master project integral design. Interaction between practice, research and education forms the core of the ‘integral approach’. Therefore the concept of the integral design workshop for professionals was implemented within the start-up workshop of our multidisciplinary masters’ project. The basis of this project, which serves as a learning-by-doing startup workshop for master students, is the Integral Design method with its use of morphological overviews. The different design assignment all were related to the design of zero energy buildings. These complex tasks require early collaboration of all design disciplines involved in the conceptual building design. Master students from architecture, building physics, building services, building technology and structural engineering participated in these projects. The master project Integral design was initiated by the chair of Building Services in the 2005/06 academic year and since then was held every year. The master students from architecture, building physics, building services, building technology and structural engineering were offered the opportunity to participate. The frame work of the approach will be described as well as the positive effect on the collaboration between the design team’s members as result of the morphological frame work.
