HJ: People are trying to find ways to make quality residential architecture at a price that more people can afford. Architects and designers need to work together to get closer to the construction crews and manufacturers to really make this a collaborative effort from the ground up. The way the construction industry works now, everything is separated into these silos, which makes collaboration for the best product at the best price difficult. It's about carefully tuning design to the production process. Production and design need to team up.
