Verify in Field

The acronym VIF, or verify in field, is a notational convention on architectural drawings, alerting the builder that conditions in the field may differ from what appears on the drawings, and that further verification is necessary. The notation acknowledges the contingencies of constructions and the limits of architectural representation. It also speaks volumes about disciplinary questions about the scope and authority of drawings and the interactions necessary between concept and construction. At Höweler + Yoon we use the terms “verification” and “field” to illuminate the design processes that we undertake in our work at different scales, from the detail to the urban scale. Eric Höweler will present a range of projects using Verify in Field as a lens to understand the work and how it fits into a broader cultural context.
