A participatory design exercise based on the polyvalent layout template followed up on discussions on ‘Operational Forms’ that apply specific processes of developing, designing, erecting and running a habitat.
The highly adaptable polyvalent layout of a high-rise level was determined as a base for small groups of students to formulate joint concepts of living together as neighbours. Then taking on client- and designer roles, all units were designed by accommodating individual requirements and conceptions of co-habitation. The results have been presented at the CIB World Building Congress 2019 in Hong Kong.
