First of all you may ask: What is a "Design Charrette"?

Put simply, a Design Charrette or 'charrette' is a meeting or group session where interested parties and accredited professionals can gather to focus on a project or defined set of projects. Origins of the term  'charrette' can be found online from several reliable sources. (Note: Charrette is sometimes spelled 'Charette' or Charrete')

Here are two reference links:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charrette and http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/charrette

As you can see, the origins of the term 'charrette' go back into ancient history and yet the viability of charrettes used in today's projects cannot be denied. It is a fact that architectural and engineering firms have long utilized Design Charrettes to help describe and define the attributes of a project by forming "Integrated Design Teams". These teams typically consist of a lead architect or engineer, the project owner and others authorized to formulate strategies and guide decisions toward a better final product.

In other words, design charrettes have been utilized successfully for many decades to help create and construct some of the most beautiful and sustainable/green projects in the world including buildings, cities, bridges, homes, lodges, etc. The list could go on forever because the use of charrettes can benefit any project in achieving a better outcome, no matter how big or small.
