A couple of questions...I've snipped out all but what gave rise
>GOOD DESIGN COMES FROM:
>MODELING - patterned knowlege
>analysis of models and assemblages that have worked or failed
to work in comparable >situations (from first peoples to your neighbor)
What constitutes "worked" and "failed to work?"
>TIME ON-SITE - in place
>critical observation of the effects of past design decisions
How might different perspectives be synthesized? E.g. one
observer will see a "good" effect where another will see a "bad" effect
- if they need to co-design, how might they proceed?
>PSYCHIC SKILLS - Tools for caring
>a positive approach toward making happenings into learning
How could they ever not be learning experiences?
Seems like you have provided a darn good place to start! Best
