We are excited to share with you some qualitative and quantitative approaches we employ for user-based design.
UNDERSTANDING USERS: FROM NOTIONS TO NUMBERS
Library visitors, office workers, moviegoers and playing children instill a space with life. They are the users, bursting with design ideas and desires. Some are easily voiced and others hidden in the numbers. We are excited to share with you some qualitative and quantitative approaches we employ for user-based design.
The emphasis was on formulating a vision […] Residents and users are put at the center and very closely involved in the development process, which is part of what we at aatvos describe as user-based design.
As a result of the COVID-19 health regulations, all aatvos lectures on the short term have been postponed until further notice. As soon as the new dates are available we will communicate them on our website and social media channels.
THANK YOU AUSTRALIA!
At the Sydney Opera House, Australia, we recently discovered the universal potential of placemaking for cultural identity. The Danish architect Jørn Utzon designed the House at Tubowgule - the original name of the location - meaning ‘where the wise waters meet’. From the early years of civilization, this location served as a meeting place for the Custodians of Gadigal Country. Today, it still has this role, as Utzon created ‘a building that changed the image of the entire country. It is the first time in our lifetime that such an epic piece of architecture gained such universal presence’ (Architect Frank Gehry, on awarding Utzon the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2003).
With a passion for third places in any hemisphere, Aat Vos attended the SWITCH2019 conference in Penrith, Australia. He was a keynote speaker at this annual conference of the Public Libraries Association of New South Wales.
