Design as a team effort

Design is something that I used to think was a one man show.  There are so many different styles and approaches to design that it’s hard to collaborate with others to create one unified building.  However, I know that within firms, multiple architects collaborate on each project.  Design doesn’t have to be limited to one person, it can be a group effort.  I think the key thing that makes designing as a team work is a unified sense of style or approach.
