Collaborative design - gateway workshop

PhotoThere is no established way to employ specific methods of designing with community participation in the Thames Gateway. Currently, applied architectural design methods open up knowledge transfer gaps between planners, designers and users because of their predetermined processes and outcomes.

This project will help to enhance knowledge transfer by enabling an innovative and adventurous community workshop to test, demonstrate and communicate suitable methods through collaborative expert guidance, community engagement and publications.

The project will bring critical urban designers, planners, developers and academics together with key local communities. They will have the opportunity to explore innovative potentials of collaborative design by playing through scenarios, acceptance and feasibility. The project will be delivered over 3 workshop events, with several working groups at UEL Docklands Campus in summer 2008.

The work has a range of scales, from urban interventions to buildings and their components. The work is set-up to specifically address design, decision-making, building and management in community participation.

As a local case study, the CD-G Workshop’s open results will be published with texts, visuals, film, physical and computational models in real and virtual exhibitions, as well as mainstream media and focused press.
