Abstract: When architect and engineer work together as aninterdisciplinary design team, creativity takes place through the knowledge of both disciplines, and not within a single discipline alone. This requires a rich communication.
Therefore architect and engineer need to possess sufficient mutual knowledge on both disciplines. By examining four of my own projects as structural engineer, several communication characteristics for interdisciplinary design could be determined. They show that communication with a high level of discipline related abstraction enhances the interdisciplinary creativity.
