Jonathan Ochshorn, professor and director of graduate studies in architecture, recently published an article titled "Architecture's Dysfunctional Couple: Design and Technology at the Crossroads" in the International Journal of Design Education 7, no. 4 (2014): 35–46.

The article addresses what Ochshorn sees as the gap between abstract building design objectives and increasingly subtle technical requirements. The result, he argues, is a "perfect storm of building failure in practice."

Ochshorn presented an abridged version of the article at the Eighth International Conference on Design Principles and Practices held at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada in January 2014.
