Pickard Chilton: The Art of Collaboration
- Text is by acclaimed architectural writer Michael J. Crosbie, with a preface by Cesar Pelli, and foreword by Thomas Fisher
- Pickard Chilton's design approach is based upon understanding client values, through which mutual trust, rapport, and a collaborative relationship are achieved. The resulting architecture, documented in the book, reflects the client's needs and value system
Relationships between architects and clients – built upon expressed values, as well as their import into the final work of architecture – are typically not discussed in architectural education, rarely considered in architectural criticism or theory, and usually missing in most writing about architecture. This monograph seeks to highlight and address this deficiency. The book focuses on the process that the firm uses to help their clients to define values, and to intone them through architectural design. Exquisitely presented throughout, this volume presents a range of built and in-process works at a variety of scales, complexity, and locations, with various clients. Most of these projects have not been previously published. The projects will be documented and discussed within the context of the value proposition and design process that distinguish Pickard Chilton’s approach to architecture.
