STBY has been selected in the panel of senior design project managers for Designs of the Time 2009 (Dott09), the new user-led design initiative planned for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Our contribution to the Heartlands project inspired a group of community regeneration officers of Kerrier District Council to invite us to share our knowledge and experience on ways to involve local communities in regeneration projects.
Early April we immersed ourselves in Include 2009, the leading cross-disciplinary conference on the inclusive approach to people-centered design and innovation at the Royal College of Art in London.
Early July we organised five User Forums for Heartlands, the regeneration project in Cornwall we work for as Inclusive Design facilitators all year in 2008.
As part of our long-time involvement in the Heartlands project in Cornwall as inclusive design facilitators, we organised a series of workshops to generate ideas and conversations about the futures use of some of the new buildings.
For the Kerrier District Council in Pool, Cornwall we conducted an inclusive design review. They had recently completed the masterplan stage of a large-scale and complex urban regeneration project, and wished to evaluate this process from the perspective of inclusive design principles before they embarked on the detailed design stages.
