The office structure is designed to ensure the clear allocation of responsibilities, the safe-guarding of quality and the efficient carrying out of all work processes. One objective of these internal processes is to store the wealth of existing and newly acquired experience and to pass this onto the team. In addition to this the office organisation also allows for cooperation with external experts who broaden the knowledge base of our team on both the practical and theoretical levels.
The regular internal and external exchange of knowledge supports the growing and dynamic office structure. LABs ensure that the office has both the time and the content required for research and development. In addition to original research and the development of the subjects of the LABs, regularly held presentations contribute to the strengthening of internal communication.
LABS The aim is that both our architectural (DMAA) and industrial design projects (DMID) have access to the experience that is organised, presented and documented by the LABs. A pool of LAB projects is being created that is improving the presentation, execution and understanding of the work of DMAA.
WHICH LABS DO WE HAVE?
The DMAA LAB for Research and Development currently consists of ten individual labs which are broken down into the following categories:
THE TEN LABS ARE DIVIDED INTO THE AREAS OF
Scripting & Parametrics
INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL EXCHANGE
External LAB experts are brought in for LAB topics which can be investigated more economically and more logically in terms of content if they are contracted out. These experts can be both institutions which are permanently working on development topics and individuals who are consulted in connection with a special research subject.
Exchange is a central objective of the LAB idea. To this end presentations occur at regular intervals in which the results of the LAB topics are discussed with the team.
