After starting my new design business, a friend suggested that I read "Design through Dialogue". I knew what I wanted out of my business and had loose notions about how things should work. I was happily surprised with my reaction to the book - the scenarios were not that different than what I had thought or experienced in past work, but to read the well illustrated accounts from the different designers affirmed what I had been thinking and gave me a renewed sense of confidence in my decision to go out on my own. The book is an easy and enjoyable read, and if you are starting a service based business, reliant on client relationships, I would definitely recommend this book to you.

Karen and Teresa have crafted a work that is not just useful but also inspiring. Their ability to peel back and expose the layers of human interations during the genesis of the design process is brilliant. Using a variety of examples, they reveal the inner workings of client and designer through their communications.

This text is a must read for all design diciplines.

Here is the takeaway message: Architects and clients need to work together in order to create experientially rich, functional, and beautifully crafted places. In example after example, theme after theme, this book provides insights into the strategies and actions of both architects and clients in creating such settings. It's a joy to read and browse through. All up and coming architects and established practitioners ought to read it.

This book taps into a fundamental, yet too often overlooked truth about the nature of architectural design: that is that design is an essentially relational practice. Relational work takes effort. The problem has been that it has usually taken a back seat to what people tend to think of the "real" work of creative thinking or even project management. Relational work is undervalued. But it is the work that needs to occur in order for the so-called real work to be accomplished.

Design through Dialogue picks up where Dana Cuff's Architecture: The Story of Practice and Andy Pressman's The Fountainhead-ache end. In Cuff's excellent book, we find everyday architect's stymied and frustrated in their inability to get clients to see things there way. Likewise, Pressman's book leaves us wondering if architects will ever gain enough of a sense of humor and humility to respect and appreciate their clients. Both of these books, written in the '90s, had a significant impact. Architects have started listening rather intently to their clients (imagine!) and the professional community has responded with a new emphasis on demonstrating the value of design to clients--even recognizing through the Architectural Record/Businessweek Awards program projects that exemplify the very best in value-added design. The American Institute of Architects has also revised its standard contract forms for architectural services in a way that allows architects to package their services in a manner that recognizes the unique nature of every project and every client. And the first six (yes, six) chapters of the AIA's latest Handbook of Professional Practice are devoted to client relations.

This book demonstrates that the days of the adversarial relationship between architect and client are finally out of style, if not gone. The architects who cling to the Roark model are on the wane (all but the most talented tend to get weeded out during economic downturns ). The architects interviewed in this book come from thriving, creative, and relational practices. They and their client are to be much admired, as are the authors of this book.
