Traditional/Alternative:Character defined/undefined

6 October, 2006

In any project, whether it is ‘traditional’ or ‘alternative’ there are characters: architect, client, user, etc. etc…  Traditional practice retains strict, rigid definitions of each character and what falls under their remit.  In some cases this develops into a hierarchy, recognising positions of ‘professional’ and ‘lay-person’.  Alternative practice allows these stereotypes to be dissolved.  Quite often client is or becomes architect or vice versa leading to a more diverse discourse between characters.
