How often should building codes be revised to stay abreast of any significant building or energy efficient practices?


Architect Rem Koolhaas recently told attendees at the American Institute of Architects’ 2016 conference that the architectural community needs an overhaul in terms of communication. “Architecture has a serious problem today in that people who are not alike don’t communicate,” he said, noting that differing opinions help deliver stronger design. Do you agree or disagree?
