With international cross-cultural collaborations on the rise, how have large design firms negotiated the complexities and challenges that arise in these projects? This session will bring together large design firms to share organizational strategies and programmatic thinking about their global projects. Brief “case study” presentations will be followed by small group discussions that focus issues identified by the session participants. This session is designed to complement “Session 1: Collaborative Global Practice: Small firm Practices.” Attending both will provide a more in-depth consideration of global practice issues. The development of both sessions is supported by a 2011 NCARB Grant for the Integration of Practice and Education in the Academy to the Boston Architectural College.
