Data Driven Design

About

DIAZ DIAZ is a data driven design firm, creating solutions and opportunities within the fields of architecture, environmental design, and research.

Our design interventions are based on scientific data and empirical information, and driven by both, the “right-brain” and “left-brain” modes of analysis. At DIAZ DIAZ, we have learned that by emphasizing credible evidence to influence design, we can make strategic decisions that respond to the specific needs and desired results of each client.

Architecture

We take pride in understanding our clients' businesses and how architecture and the spatial experiences can impact the results. DIAZ DIAZ is constantly pushing the boundaries in design as we understand that our daily behaviors as humans can be influenced by the design and experiences in our natural and built environment.

Enviromental Design

Our sustainable design integrates the environment, economy and society that influence behaviors. We look at the linkage between our proposed built environment and the desired social behaviors, experiences, and existing natural systems. DIAZ DIAZ, through technology, tools and methods, studies the climate, building performance, efficiency and data visualization.

Methodology

We understand the importance of our client’s goals and processes. At DIAZ DIAZ, we work with a design process proven to guide towards specific goals.

Information

Information

DIAZ DIAZ is committed to design based on information and to work towards the desired results of each of our clients. Our first and key step is obtaining and documenting information needed to understand the clients’ needs and project goals.

Concept

Concept

Design revolves around a big idea. We believe in studying concepts and possibilities that fit the client’s needs established in the information phase. The final idea is a story that becomes a design framework to guide the project.

Development

Development

This is the process that takes the idea into a technical document. Here we develop the story by creating what we call in Panama, the “Anteproyecto”. It is about sharing the scope of the project, and integrating engineering knowledge and requirements needed for the development of the concept.

Plans

Plans

The construction plans are the final documents of the project. These are used for cost estimation, bidding, and construction. Every engineering discipline is involved throughout this phase, integrating their plans and focusing on problem-solving details.

Site

Site

We become an allied and guardian of the concept. Through site visits and virtual tools, our team ensures that construction goes according to design. We review equipment and material purchases, and answer any question and information needed.

Measurement

Measurement

The design process starts with finding the specific client’s goals; we want to end with measuring the project results against the original goals. We believe in documenting the outcomes and sharing the results internally with our team, and externally with our clients.

Selected work

We understand the importance of our client’s goals and processes. At DIAZ DIAZ, we work with a design process proven to guide towards specific goals.
