Prior to the selection of the architect to design a public project for a public entity, such as municipalities, the public architect must perform many types of analyses, make many decisions and recommendations, and be acutely aware of the social, community, and political environment of the project. This presentation will provide an insight into how public architects can use their knowledge, background, and insight to address a variety of issues such as community needs, site selection, establishing architect selection criteria, and use of technology. Using case studies, this presentation will demonstrate how these factors affect the design of a project before the architect is selected. Panel members from three major cities will discuss how cities develop projects, how they address issues associated with funding, and the socio-economic and political environment which the public architect must address prior to the design process commences.
