I'm Matt Dumich from Adrian Smith Gordon Gill Architecture in Chicago where I am a Project Manager and Senior Architect working on arts and cultural projects and master plans. So the first thing required to build a team is to really understand the project scope. And today I'm gonna talk to you about the Astana Expo which we designed in 2015. We had 28 buildings of different types. And so here's the finished project. And here's the diagram that we developed to break down the scope into individual project elements.

So each color here is a different project team. So each of those teams has a design lead, a technical lead and then a manger. And I was the overall project manager for this project. So on the orange team for example, which is the International Pavilions we had a design team leader and they're responsible for really organizing the team. We start out working in Rhino where we're really modeling and sculpting the buildings and once we're happy with the design we bring in to Revit and everything is documented in Revit.

So our whole team is really facile in both platforms. And the technical team is really is working on documenting the project, developing the details in Revit, but we're also studying things as the design develops through Rhino and we're seamlessly working between platforms so there's a broad skillset on the team depending on what phase that you're in.

Early on it's a lot of Rhino and a lot of conceptual work, a lot of graphics and as the project develops we bring in more technical staff to really develop the details and systems and materials.
