ABSTRACT STRATEGY The second case is an interview with the managing director of Arkitema (AT). AT is the largest architectural office in Denmark and was founded in 1970. The firm shows an explicit interest in industrialized processes and, among other reasons, was selected because of its biannually published Videnregnskab – a written and illustrated summary of its business and where it wants to focus in the future. The interview places AT close to the management approach. AT’s approach can, in general terms, be characterized as mainly process oriented.

The assignment consisted of two parts – a planning phase and an executing/building phase. The students found it difficult not to fall back on their traditional working methods, but after a while they began to find it easier when they dropped their individual need to influence the project and instead worked as a group. When executing their schemes, they fully carried out their roles and the various project results of the groups turned out very differently – very much in accordance with the different approaches.

The role of the architect is to interpret and synthesize the many different inputs. Knowledge is systematically gained and critically held up against present knowledge. This means that knowledge is accumulated directly within the company. The working methods are fixed and transparent, and well-known solutions (typologies) are repeated while continually adjusted and refined. Every task is specified so that responsibility can be distributed easily. Objectives concerning architectural quality transcend the project level, for example sustainability, low-cost building or exploitation of the potential of daylight.
