A Participatory Design approach where we design with people and not just for people
2010 – present
Local Neighborhoods in Singapore
To enable everyday citizens in shaping the built environment
DESCRIBE YOUR PRACTICE IN THREE WORDS:
Putting people first.
WHERE DO YOU GO, OR WHAT DO YOU DO, WHEN YOU GET STUCK ON A PROJECT?
Talk to people who we are designing for and go where they are.
NAME A BOOK YOU THINK EVERY CREATIVE SHOULD READ.
Designing with People and not just for People, A Publication by P!D =P, where we share our experiences in involving regular citizens in designing the everyday spaces of Singapore, as well as the participatory design framework that they have developed through research and projects in neighborhoods across Singapore.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE CREATIVITY?
Innovating the design process and product where you challenge the status quo.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON CURRENTLY?
We are rethinking how we can design and built playspaces in Singapore where we are inviting children and parents to be part of the design conversation with us. It is an opportunity to redefine how children play where we design with children and not just for them.
