Collaborative concept design as socio-construction

  title={Collaborative concept design as socio-construction},
  author={Danilo Gomes and Patricia Tzortzopoulos and Mike Kagioglou},
This research addresses the problem of lack of integration on decision-making caused by misunderstandings between team members during collaborative concept design. Previous research on collaborative design indicated relevant empirical evidence that current concepts of collaboration in design and construction focus on changing the context and the media, and have not properly addressed the socio-constructive nature of collaboration, failing to allow the development of particular abilities…

Cooperation and Individualism in Design
Individualism encourages designers to be incommunicative, protective of their ideas, and unable to work as a team or involve clients and the community in the process. Design requires effective
