Evolution of Process and Design

BY RON SEMEL
@ ARCHEX PECHAKUCHA SESSION ON NOV 07, 2013

Ron Semel has a simple rationale for integrating process and design: if it doesn't break, you don't know what to fix. He starts off with the evolution of motocross, wanders through architectural design, and ends up at robotics. Even the design of his presentation seems to have a process to it!
