Abstract / Summary

This case study considers the impact that a participatory design workshop ‘Connected Communities’ has had on developing design briefs with architecture students and local members of the communities for which the designs are proposed. The case study provides a detailed analysis of the workshop covering design methods such as walking and talking, ‘drawing out’ and representing proposals for public review. The case study claims that introducing architecture students to co-design within their first few years of study raises their awareness of social responsibility and challenges their expectations of the role of the user and the architect in design development.
