Presented By: The Boston Architectural College

DescriptionThe globalization of the design fields is one of the most significant changes professionals have grappled with in the last ten years. With cross-cultural collaborations on the rise, how have design firms cultivated their own expertise in negotiating the complexities and challenges that arise in international projects? This session will bring together small design firms to share stories and strategies about their global work. Brief “case study” presentations will be followed by small group discussions that focus issues identified by the session participants. The session is designed to complement “Session 2: Collaborative Global Practice: Large Firm Practices.” Attending both will provide a more in-depth consideration of global practice issues. The development of both sessions is supported by a 2011 NCARB Grant for the Integration of Practice and Education in the Academy to the Boston Architectural College.
