John Jurewicz

I agree with most of Paul's thoughts about the asynchronus aspects of our industry. Complex designs, in particular, need a "marination time" to asimmilate complexities.

Please keep me in the loop on any of your publications, Paul. I would like to include your materials in a course I am teaching at Northwestern University entitled "Technology for Construction"


This interview reminds me a lot of my trip to the Frank Gehry studio. They spoke of architect and engineer becoming one, automated processes, and showed us a pretty impressive demo of their design process. It began with a sketch, went to models, and then to the computers. Visualization and electronic communication seemed especially important as the Gehry people were sending complicated specs to several contractors at once.

It seems that architects would run into a lot of standstills without the collaborative tools that exist now.
