Integrated Technology: A Paradigm Shift In Architecture
By Ryan E. Smith, University of Utah, UT
Inventors and theorists provide a prediction function to technological development offering breakthrough inventions that are not realized until long term if ever. Engineers and entrepreneurs forecast innovations by developing the technology for markets some ten years out. It is designers that determine new models less than three years out from conception. With so much control over what technologies are utilized by society with regard to buildings designers of the built environment, architects, need to have a more critical understanding and ability to critique, and select technology for building.
Toward a Comprehensive Theory of Collaboration
From Journal of Applied Behavorial Science Donna J. Wood and Barbara Gray, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science
The articles in this issue of the Journal of Applied Behavioral Science complete the set of two special issues titled “Collaborative Alliances: Moving from Practice to Theory”. The articles provide a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives on the process of collaboration and the forms of collaborative alliances. Addressing the preconditions, process and outcomes of collaboration, research findings are analyzed and collectively provide insight into how a comprehensive theory of collaboration might be shaped and the questions such a theory might need to address.
