RP10 project focuses on the novel potentials and promises of co-design-based advances for multi-storey buildings and the social factors influencing their realization. New options they offer and the challenges they face will be characterized by combining architectural, historical and social sciences perspectives. Research has shown that innovations in architecture rarely fail due to poor technology, but rather because they do not sufficiently meet the needs and expectations of users, or do not align with changing social, cultural or economic contexts. Thus, mismatches between architectural approaches, stakeholder expectations, and given institutional frameworks may act as non-technical innovation barriers that can seriously hamper the chances of realizing the full potential of integrative computation for multi-storey building design and construction. These chances will be explored and enhanced by reconsidering historical shortcomings, failures and societal dynamics in the industrially produced architecture of the 1960-70s, through characterizing co-design-enabled novel building typologies and morphologies and their functional and aesthetic expressions, and by examining the interactions between the emerging paradigm of integrative design and construction in computational architecture, stakeholder concerns and expectations, competing narratives, and necessary organizational rearrangements.
