EMERGING PRACTICES IN DESIGNING URBAN ARTIFACTS: INTERDISCIPLINARITY AND CO-DESIGN
Keywords:interdisciplinarity, co-design, street furniture, public space, user
This article explores the tangible and intangible dimensions of the relationship between street furniture, public space and its user. This relationship is discussed through a reflection on the concepts and key features in the development of interdisciplinary street furniture design projects. It is addressed the importance of street furniture elements in the valorisation and perception of the quality of public space, and the various dimensions underlying these artefacts. It is also discussed the concept of interdisciplinarity, integrating it within the view of co-design and how the new forms of public participation are changing the practice of design. It was intended to understand the full innovation potential of an interdisciplinary approach to street furniture design and the implications of that action.
