yes .H., do you think it would be possible to create a 'distributed
network' and attempt to submit a proposal in a design competition?
maybe we could get a list of those interested, skills, and try to
network a project in the future...
We could---but base it on (a) specific competitions).
I suggest a list of specific competitions be connected to Design List,
its subscribers can see what is current.
Then, they could add their names and expertise to the list of specific
on a competition-by-competition basis. Knowing, or determining, the
expertise would have to be determined/confirmed by the project
The project architect might be chosen from amongst the interested
for a specific competition---probably in the most democratic way.
Once that list is complete for a specific competition, then entry to
a specific competition could occur.
Fees for entry sould be equally shared by entrants.
There should be some kind of (computer) monitoring method that would
persons interested in a specific competition of its readiness-to-begin.
how has it worked for you Howard. what does nearness vs. distance
enable.. is it similar to a design-think-tank (which it seems your
collection of experts for your project indicates to me)...
The most critical need for it is CAD and CADD support.
Without it, forget it.
Also, the need for the project architect to be in DIRECT PHYSICAL
with the CAD and CADD is essential, since constant adjustment to the
occurs at that place.
Also, involvement of students, especially for 2D and 3D models is
only if they are commited and supervised (by course credit and an
instructor, for example).
Hope this helps. . .
