An Industrialized Ecosystem : (Re)claiming Design Integrity Hall, Joshua Alexander


Addressing the need for progressive change in our industry, this thesis argues that it is integral to bring the concept of designing for manufacturing and assembly (DfMA) into our professional discourse. Deconstructing the erosion of our design integrity from three traditionally undervalued phases of a project—Design Development, Construction Documentation, and Tendering—this thesis proposes that by collectively fostering an “Industrialized Ecosystem”, we can democratize industrialized processes to strengthen the integrity of our work.
