The nature of my collaboration is that everyone involved needs to have equal input on the task being completed. When I collaborate I like to consult the group members before making a decision on a project.
It isn’t very different than my individual practice because architecture is based on collaboration. Whether it is between other architects or different disciplines, architecture thrives on collaborating and reaching to other professions in order to thrive. It involves other disciplines in order to be a successful product at the end. Since it takes so much work to design a building, collaboration is very important and necessary.
The effects of collaborative effort on my individual practice are multiple. When working in an architecture firm, you are always in a team with multiple individuals that have different expertise in different aspects of the project. Communicating with them and discussing the work is very important in the success of the project.
