Abstract (Summary)

Design-build is the process whereby a project is constructed by the same entity that designed it. Detailed narratives are provided for the collaborative, integrated design-build of two small, relatively contemporary pavilions. The first was constructed as part of a design-build workshop taught by Steve Badanes, director of the Neighborhood Design/Build Studio at the University of Washington Department of Architecture and founder of the international architecture firm The Jersey Devil. The second, a multi-use pavilion on the site of a former junkyard, was implemented as a local volunteer community service project using Badanes' method. A third proposal is also described; an amphitheater honoring the late architect and educator Samuel Mockbee FAIA in his hometown of Canton, Mississippi.

An integrated design-build process emphasizes synthesis of assemblages. The design-build of a small pavilion by a group can serve as a simple, straightforward introduction to collaboration and the nature of synthetic processes.
