Our team has already commenced a series of research activities since April this year to set the basis for the Wellbeing Design Guide and Self-Assessment toolkit, these activities include:
We are now embarking on the next phase of work to include more professional organisations and academia as supporting organisations for the following activities:
Nov 14th 9.30am - 12.30pm (at Poly U) - up to 4 members
Nov 28th 9.30am - 12.30pm (at Poly U) - up to 4 members
Dec 14th 9.30am - 12.30pm (at Poly U) - up to 4 members
Building onto the concept of a "Well-being Baseline" of safety, security and comfort at public housing developments, the Wellbeing Design Ideation workshops create an opportunity for different practitioners, NGO representatives, government officials, and public housing residents to empathise with the basic and life situation changes of public housing residents, to ideate "Well-being Design Enhancements" based on hardware, software, and humanware improvements along the different user journey of public spaces at Public Housing Estates. The Design Thinking Ideations will reference the 8 Well-being Concepts hints for local adaption at Housing Estates based on the participants' experience to stretch how different places at public housing can be enhanced and measured.
10+ resident personas based on our research at public estates in the past 6 months will be shared to derive a human-centric design. From a district and neighbourhood level, what are the needs and wants of public housing residents as it relates to the planning and design of the neighbourhood from the entry of the flat to the neighbourhood? How might we identify strategic places for intervention to increase the residents' well-being by understanding their daily journey at the neighbourhood level?
The workshop will create multiple ideas of well-being through group discussions and facilitated activities and games through design thinking. Please see attached poster for the sign-up, once you confirm your participation as a supporting organisation we will also add your credentials and logo for the project.
