Make Space: How to Set the Stage for Creative Collaboration

Make Space: How to Set the Stage for Creative Collaboration Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

make space is about creative spaces and about creating spaces. Space is more than just the physical environment.

Five types of content are mixed into the book.

Enter from whatever direction suits your needs:

tools

stuff to build

situations

quick, repeatable configurations

insights

ideas to consider

design template

a simple breakdown of how the properties of places can spark actions and attitudes in people

space studies

true stories about making space and living in it

The more than 100 mini-entries in this book will help you slice through this complexity and jump from inspiration to action: make an existing space more collaborative, conceive of new creative work spaces, and design learning environments from scratch.

This guiding content emerged from a five-year experiment at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (aka the "d.school") and from continuous (but jovial) poking and prodding of countless students, faculty, visitors, and project partners.

Scott Doorley and Scott Witthoft are directors of the Environments Collaborative at Stanford University's d.school—the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. With the d.school's support, they have prepared make space as a tool for everyone interested in designing and creating environments to support creative collaboration.

Scott Doorley's work focuses on how physical context and digital media can benefit human experience.

His installations with the Dacha Art Collective have been exhibited in the San Jose Museum of Art and the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts San Francisco. Currently he is the Creative Director at the Stanford d.school, where he teaches classes in subjects at the intersection of design and media arts: storytelling and visual communication, improv, and digital media.

Scott has degrees in film from the University of California, Los Angeles (BA '96) and learning, design, and technology from Stanford University (MA '06).

Synopsis:

Bill Moggridge, Director of the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum:

"If you are determined to encourage creativity and provide a collaborative environment that will bring out the best in people, you will want this book by your side at all times."

James P. Hackett, President and CEO, Steelcase:

"By actively thinking about the implications a space has on its inhabitants, we can create great experiences for those who enter. make space is an articulate account about the importance of space: how we think about it, build it and thrive in it."

Synopsis:

"If you are determined to encourage creativity and provide a collaborative environment that will bring out the best in people, you will want this book by your side at all times."

—Bill Moggridge, Director of the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum

"Make Space is an articulate account about the importance of space; how we think about it, build it and thrive in it."

—James P. Hackett, President and CEO, Steelcase

An inspiring guidebook filled with ways to alter space to fuel creative work and foster collaboration.

Based on the work at the Stanford University d.school and its Environments Collaborative Initiative, Make Space is a tool that shows how space can be intentionally manipulated to ignite creativity. Appropriate for designers charged with creating new spaces or anyone interested in revamping an existing space, this guide offers novel and non-obvious strategies for changing surroundings specifically to enhance the ways in which teams and individuals communicate, work, play--and innovate.

Inside are:

Tools--tips on how to build everything from furniture, to wall treatments, and rigging

Situations--scenarios, and layouts for sparking creative activities

Insights--bite-sized lessons designed to shortcut your learning curve

Space Studies--candid stories with lessons on creating spaces for making, learning, imagining, and connecting

Design Template--a framework for understanding, planning, and building collaborative environments

Make Space is a new and dynamic resource for activating creativity, communication and innovation across institutions, corporations, teams, and schools alike. Filled with tips and instructions that can be approached from a wide variety of angles, Make Space is a ready resource for empowering anyone to take control of an environment.
