"The Process of IPD"



The IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) describes a new trend in Architecture which reminds us of the traditional Gothic Architecture. The panel consisting of a discipline leader, a lighting designer and an interior designer, will discuss the process for the New Pavilion for the University of Pennsylvania in detail. The discussion will include how it involves the client, the designers and the construction team. The process and the colocation provides different challenges and advantages which will be presented. The financial aspect with the Live Target Value Design will be explained with examples. Hands on coordination as well as mockups have great impact on a design for IPD. The value of performing multiple mockups will be discussed.
