Introduction by:

Fung and Hodgetts discuss concepts behind the designs of a few of their collaborative projects, as well as challenges found within the collaborative process. Hodgetts discusses correlations between architecture and automotive design, utilizing human scale and ergonomic considerations within their design process. The concepts of compacted space and utilization of void spaces and the manipulation of conventional scale of elements in order to provide alternate readings. Clear examples were given of each concept within their visual presentation.

Hodgetts and Fung discuss the difficulties of creating architectural dialogues when working within different cultures and value systems, while discussing design as a collaborative process. Hodgetts discusses the relationship between automotive design and architecture and the importance of the utilization of ergonomic relationships of human scale. Projects were driven by compression of information and space, taking advantage of the manipulation of conventional scale in order to provide a different reading.
