Value of Design

Addressing the financial objectives of the developer, this course presents an understanding of the importance of design in optimizing those objectives. Reviewing case studies of significant development projects by the renowned architectural firm KPF, the design process, and the timing of critical and collaborative decision-making is investigated. The student will be challenged to formulate the value proposition of design alternatives, and seek to estimate the financial consequences of design decisions.

Strongly recommended for ALL students.
