From pedagogical ideas to a school building: Analysis of user involvement in building design

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    This study explores a school building design project, which was carried out in collaboration between school staff and students, architects, design engineers and other design experts. This study aims to expand the focus from regarding the users as information briefers in early design phases to cover a long-term user involvement in building design. The research data cover a period of four years. The data include formal documents of the project; interviews of the users, architects and representatives of the client; recordings of twenty design meetings (design team meetings, meetings between users, between users, architects and designers), and design documents produced by the designers and the school users. The results help to interpret the design process as co-design, which expands the usersÕ initially abstract and hidden user needs to visible models and designs. The collaboration requires merging of the usersÕ conceptual tools and the designersÕ concrete drawings and specifications, the structuring of several co-design forums, coordination by the head-user and specific user groups, and tools for individual working and responsibilities. The results can be used to illuminate and to plan user involvement as a heterogeneous and long-term building design activity.
