Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering by Clare Olsen (UCLA, M. Arch. I, 2003) and Sinead Mac Namara (Princeton, PhD) was recently published in the U.S. and UK by Routledge. The text discusses the challenges and rewards of interdisciplinary collaborations and features in-depth case studies describing the processes involved in designing and realizing complex architectural projects. Two of the projects profiled include 41 Cooper Square by Morphosis (Distinguished Professor Thom Mayne) and the Keelung Harbor project by NMDA (Professor Neil Denari), Inc. The book also describes the methods, tools and contracts that support better design integration.
