About ParticiPlace

ParticiPlace is a design challenge which fosters collaboration between designers and underserved communities and promotes sustainable and socially responsive building designs.
The combination of both social and technical challenges in design project calls for multidisciplinary teams of designers, architects and engineers working closely with community members.

ParticiPlace is bringing together designers and communities to compose sustainable and socially-sensitive environments


The design competition is expected to benefit these three key realms:
  1. Provide the community with a variety of design solutions for their real-life design problem.
  2. Learn and experience unique methods of community engagement through a collaborative process which designers can then incorporate into their practice.
  3. Evaluate methods for community engagement – a contribution to design methods and action research.
