Charrette

After an initial meeting between the architect and client to gather information about the project and define the specifics of the scope the charrette is scheduled. The charrette process includes a highly focused meeting between the architect and client in which the preliminary design concepts are explored and developed through loose hand sketches allowing the client’s direct input into the design. The result of this process is that the time invested to arrive at the preliminary scope and essential characteristics of each project is greatly condensed. Additionally, the interaction between the architect and client at this stage provides for a meaningful beginning to the project and ultimately a far greater result.
