Frank Gehry’s company Gehry Technologies has partnered with the cloud-based storage service Box to integrate it into their GTeam platform. GTeam enables project teams to collaborate and share files and 3D building information online.

It can be used by architects, designers, engineers and others to save time, reach agreements quickly, reduce change orders and project costs. Gehry Technologies hopes the integration with Box will allow the platform to aid other architects and help them make the transition to digital.

It enables everyone from project owners to contractors to interact with their 3D models directly within Box. Users can also work on the same project at the same time, regardless of platform, removing uncertainty and reducing the variation of change.

Frank Gehry’s Solution To Eliminate Paper From Architecture

Wired reports that Gehry used GTeam for sharing digital plans while constructing the apartment building ‘The New York.’ They were able to cut the number of change orders (which can amount to 15% of the construction cost) down to just eight, when there can sometimes be hundreds or thousands of alterations. Gehry told Wired:

My dream is to do buildings paperless. And it can be done. I discovered that, using the computer, we had more information, which kept us in control and allowed us to protect the owner from a lot of waste in the process.
