Case Study 6: Willy Lotts - Analysis
This design tool was used to:
It helped the group discover what was really important in the design and explore its diversity, as well as any gaps in the design from functions that were requested but with no elements supporting them. .
Web of Connections
This design tool was used to identify how well the major elements in the design were interconnected, so that the group could understand the importance of diversity and multiple beneficial relationships in design.
This design tool was used to analyse the bench position in the garden. This was a key design challenge we experienced on the course, which we left hanging over on the Saturday night for discussion on Sunday morning. It was Natalia's idea to do this, and Bob and Natalia lead the group through the exercise on Sunday morning after much pvernight thought.
Planning for Real
Plasticine, plant matter and cardboard cut-outs were assembled and then used to map a 3D map of the design as the group explored potential layouts. This brought great enthusiasm and creativity to the session, and the whole group had a lot of fun putting this together before finalising the design.
