Who can see your viewing activity?
Ashley, this is so inspiring. I am loving this roundtable!!
Wonderful. Studying how artifacts create various types of interiority. Mapping the zones. I see a bit of Patch Dynamics, Service Design Thinking, as well as the potential of deploying the tool(s) and tool system within existing sites setting the stage for different discussions. For example, how might conversations go if this is deployed at empty/failed sites versus site where successful places of interaction and life occur?
Ashley - where is the furniture you’re proposing located? Is it possible to merge the information cards with the planning pieces - so it’s not a two-step card-game/board-game, but integrated? And how might your game board/furniture draw from a history such the chess board/table, which in its earliest uses represented the ideal working city (with each piece representing a different citizen/vocation who had to be well choreographed? (Also - never apologize for your drawings - it’s wonderful to see your iterative thinking!)
Sidewalks sounds terrific. It takes time to change habits, hopefully over time, people will use those sidewalks and begin meeting each other. Thank you for this conversation!
Indeed! Activate the streets!
They aren’t shaded ; )
If anyone would like to jump in with a question
Lovely, Jacqueline! Programming that connects outdoor activities with indoor for home and worklife….
I’m wondering about designing/researching without making communities feel as if they are “test subjects.” Given that so many communities of color (globally) have been subjected to “observation and exit,” how do you work on a thesis project where you expect people to be vulnerable with you while not over-committing what you can do for them? How do you end the project making sure that the community feels fulfilled?
Ahhh. Futuring design practices would be interesting here.
Aya’s question is an important one for designers. Clients/citizens DON’T know how to visualize their needs/desires. That is what designers are trained to do - however, the challenge is not to simply show them what WE envision FOR them. It requires humility and clear desire to help others envision their futures.
Thank you, all. Wonderful presentations and discussion. Have a good afternoon.
