Knotworking is a new idea that is experimented with different kinds of AEC projects, but there are not yet many publications available of them, why Knotworking AEC is an open idea requiring localisation in multiple projects. As an example, the visualisation of how to conduct a Knotworking session requires development for implementation in various building projects. Lassila (2016), a Finnish master thesis student in architecture at Tampere University of Technology, has developed a concept of Recipe method based on Knotworking, BIM and Lean thinking, to improve the design process of a building project through a practical tool for design management (Lassila 2016). Despite the method of Knotworking AEC, other methods are integrated to the recipe such as Lean and design thinking. The Recipe is an iterative process pointing out the ingredients of a building project and the mixing order of an improved design process (Lassila 2016). The Recipe is focused on sustainable buildings and the ingredients for a design process related to that.
According to various research (Austin et al. 2002; AIA National & AIA California Council 2007; Austin et al. 2000; Lawson 2006) and practical architects (Rifbjerg 2015), iterations are essential for the creativity, why the a visualisation e.g. mediated as a guideline requires space for iterations within each phase. Of this reason, the objective of this research is, based on Knotworking AEC, to develop a guideline framing collaboration and the related tasks for the participants to focus on their discipline and what they are good at. Based on previous literature of Knotworking and three experiments, the result of the study is a general
