About Participatory design
I believe in participatory design, encouraging the client to get more involved in the creative process so the final product reflects what the client truly needs and desires.
The traditional professional services of the architect only involves the client to the extent that they are approving each project phase.
Through clients’ participation, designers can learn more directly about how people feel about design issues and how they use space, avoiding ambiguity and assumptions.
Participation instructs the clients in important issues about the building processes and the economics behind making a building project happen.
Then the space belongs truly to those who call it home.
