The Bilbao Guggenhein Museum: Topics in Project Management

The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao has had an unprecedented impact not only on the city of Bilbao but also on the value of design and the public\'s perception of architecture worldwide. This seminar focuses on the \”other\” elements, hidden in the team of people and organizations that make good architecture possible and allow architects to reach their potential. The seminar introduces fundamentals of project management as related to organization, team building, owner relations, cost estimating, budget control, and scheduling, with a focus on process, leadership, and technology. The project management of the museum constitutes the basis for five workshops on: bidding for the project management, starting the job, project development, construction bidding, and management of construction.PrerequisitesPermission of instructor.Class meetingsFebruaryTuesday 4, Thursday 6Tuesday 11, Thursday 13Tuesday 18 , Thursday 20MarchTuesday 4, Thursday 6Tuesday 11, Thursday 13AprilTuesday 1, Thursday 3Tuesday 8, Thursday 11For more information please visit: http://gsdcourses.harvard.edu/7222/
