Co-creating Architecture no. 2 – Effekt

Co-creating Architecture is a bookseries project that takes a look at the vast potential and use of co-creation within Danish architecture.

It portrays a generation of Danish architects who set 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.

This book introduces EFFEKT: ‘empathic designers’ 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 means getting the right answers; involving stakeholders at all levels results in innovative and socially sustainable solutions that help change the world for the better.
