As percent for art programmes are increasingly adopted by public agencies, architects and artists are asked to collaborate on the design of large-scale projects. This collaborative design process necessitates a shared role in delivering a project within the technical and budgetary demands. Determining, to a large extent, the dynamics of this collaboration, is an evolution of the procurement methods by which both artists and architects are engaged. What was once a given procurement methodology of Design/Bid/Build, is now rapidly being replaced by variations on Design/Build, P3 procurements, creating additional challenges for the delivery of integrated art and design excellence.

What makes for a good collaboration? What factors, from procurement to project delivery, lead to successful, integrated art programmes? What can we anticipate from the effects of the various method of procurement? This panel seeks to answer questions and to ask even more, about how architects can deliver design excellence when working with artists as design collaborators.
