Understanding a space's nuances, influenced by factors like lighting and human traffic, is an invaluable lesson. Moreover, site visits in the pre-design phase help students connect with the local culture, promoting context-sensitive design solutions. It's on-site where construction methods come to life, a dimension often underrepresented in formal education. Learning from experts in various fields involved in construction fosters multidisciplinary insights. Safety concerns become evident, emphasizing the importance of precaution in the profession. Site visits also teach students to think on their feet, making critical decisions under tight time constraints. Engaging in discussions with multidisciplinary teams hones communication and interpersonal skills, crucial for successful collaboration. Lastly, site visits shed light on why design plans may fail to materialize as intended, offering valuable insights for future projects.
