Method of implementation

return to Student Design Guide index

Projects can be implemented in different ways:

A sequence of contracts over a long period of time.

When this method is used, and an overall unity is required, it is necessary to establish firm design principles at the outset. Normally, the skills of a hunter-designer will be required for this task.

A single contract.

This is the traditional way of producing a building. It requires a balance between the approaches of the hunter and the nester.

A series of on-site decisions, without a written or drawn contract.

This is the way of the nester, and requires the skills of a craftsperson.
