Modeling collective architectural conception – DPEA research dissertation

2013-05-14 poster Alexandru Senciuc impression

On the 27th of September I presented my research dissertation within the DPEA pre-PhD course, for which I received the “very good” mention. The dissertation is entitled: “Modeling of the collective architectural conception. Cooperation, coordination and collaboration via basic online tools”. It is a first step towards the architecture PhD thesis and seeks to build a model of the collective architectural conception process by taking into account three entities: the people, the tools and the architectural model.
