title Multi User Online Design Environment for Mass Housing - A collaborative decision-support tool
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Österlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 77-80
summary Participatory design is not new, various design projects have included public opinions, ideas, and suggestions to help architects to produce designs that fit the desires and needs of the users or community. In the context of mass housing, participation is seldom applied as the primary focus is on efficiency. Designs are generated mainly based on architects' experiences or through data from developers or government sectors that claim to reflect the needs and desires of the occupants. In this workshop a digital platform called 'ModRule' is introduced to provide a means for a participatory process in the connection with a virtual environment software, 'Fuzor'. ModRule plays the role of a collaborative design platform while Fuzor provides real-time visualisation and building information. The aim of this workshop is to explore how a user participatory design set-up allows for an active participation of stakeholders in the initial design phase of mass housing.
