Their research posits co-design both as a powerful design tool to address intersectional issues of the built environment, and as an irreplaceable civic process in its generation, exchange and application of collective knowledge. It seeks to assess existing forms of 'community engagement', identify current challenges that hinder meaningful collaborative design process, and speculate ways for co-design to be integrated into design processes at different scales.

Deborah Saunt appointed as Eero Saarinen Visiting Professor of Architectural Design at Yale UniversityIn Autumn 2020, DSDHA's Deborah will take up the position of Eero Saarinen Visiting Professor of Architectural Design at the Yale School of Architecture, following in the footsteps of Denise Scott Brown, Zaha Hadid, Toshiko Mori and Yolande Daniels.This semester's Advanced Design Studio will ask 'What About Learning?', questioning the right to knowledge and participation in civic life, and architecture's role in shaping education and urban engagement.Reflecting on post-COVID impacts, the Studio will explore the condition of dispersed learning and will look beyond just bricks and mortar to apply spatial intelligence to the analysis of wider environmental, political and socio-economic relationships in learning and their different manifestations in urban and virtual environments. DSDHA's Jane Wong will be also supporting the Studio's research.The Yale Studio complements DSDHA’s ongoing research into contemporary emerging behaviours, and also relates specifically to our work for the British Library and the role of pubic space and access to knowledge, both inside the building itself and beyond its formal boundaries.Tags: Deborah Saunt Visiting Professor Yale University Yale School of Architecture Eero Saarinen learning education spatial intelligence British Library behaviours participation knowledgeShare:
