Controlling information

This chapter is concerned primarily with the communication of informa-

tion in the practice of technical design in architecture. As we have seen,

there are many aspects to this process and all hold the capability to

increase the levels of information transfer, but equally they also harbour

the potential to disrupt that process by containing conflicting informa-

tion. This capacity for confusion is potentially disastrous, and it is in

most cases the responsibility of the technical designer to manage the

confluence of information at this vital point.
