January 14 Lunchtime Program
Construction documents evolved slowly for many years, but standardization of format and content has since prevented logical evolution. Today's construction documents are mired in tradition and standards that are no longer applicable. Similarly, the roles of the architect and the contractor have evolved, but the logical changes in construction documents have been ignored in favor of a mythical memory of the good old days, when architects were master builders.
