Collaborative design resembles a discussion or conversation. Ideas are bounced off the different members of a design team. Depending on the task and the point in time the engineer joins a design team different structural parameters contribute to an integrated solution. The paper will present different strategies we pursue involving geometry, topology and materiality. Geometry plays a major role for structural performance in large-scale structures and at the same time embodies the architectural design approach. Thus a solution which suits different requirements has to be negotiated. Topology of surface- and vector-active systems within a predefined shape or envelope can become the objective of evolutionary design processes where structure adapts to specific needs. Materiality is embedded into a larger context of material systems that include digital workflow and fabrication.
