Buy both! Co-Creating Architecture no. 1 and 2. NORD / EFFEKT
Co-creating Architecture is a book project that takes a look at the vast potential and use of co-creation within Danish architecture. To do so best Co-creating Architecture comes as a series of books in which Danish design studios that emerged during the 2000s and early 2010s are portrayed. This generation of designers sets a new international standard for Danish architecture with their ability to offer sustainable answers to societal and social challenges in the shape of innovative and lasting design solutions.
The key to this was and still is co-creation: a collaborative approach that opens up the creative process, inviting users, decision-makers and experts from a wide range of fields to participate in and inform the development of projects. Co-creation stimulates interest, sense of ownership, networking and political leverage, creating a strong foundation for any project, small or large-scale.
The same openness characterizes their deliberate use of communication and new media as a powerful process tool that displaces the esoteric design jargon. The result is an architecture that can be used as an important strategic instrument in the
development of society.
Book no. 1 introduces NORD Architects, who use their profound interest in social matters to work strategically with co-creation. To them opening up the architectural authorship, without relinquishing the architectural responsibility and influence, simply has far greater potential.
Book no. 2 introduces EFFEKT who practice co-creation as an integral part of their design process. To them enhancing the quality of their work comes from maintaining a constant dialogue with the world around them. Asking the right questions and getting the right input result in innovative and socially
Each book in the series Co-creating Architecture consists of three parts: an extensive interview with focus on the architects view and use of co-creation as a tool; a catalogue of completed and upcoming projects in which co-creation has played a key role; and, finally, an outside perspective on the design practice with
an analysis of its processes, solutions and potentials.
