Technology informs design

Rein Jansma explains that in the architectural company Zwarz & Jansma no distinction is made the between the design process and the technical development of design. All collaborators have to be qualified architects because research and inventions for technical development inform the design process in a fundamental way.

The research about how things work is vital for the architectural practice, Jansma argues. They work on infrastructure, mobility, as well as public buildings. Results of the research, including the algorithms they invent, are part of the identity and assets of the company.
