Essay on the origin of the concept of ‘co-creation’ and its use within current architectural practices. The essay is published in a new forthcoming book series by Danish publisher 10 Grafisk Design & Forlag that takes a look at the vast potential and use of co-creation within Danish architecture.
“The book series Co-creating Architecture showcases the generation of Danish architects that emerged during the 2000s and early 2010s. These trailblazers are looking for sustainable answers to global, societal and social challenges – which is why they open up the design process, inviting users, decision-makers and experts from a wide range of fields to participate in the development of projects. The method is called co-creation. And the result is an architecture that functions as an important tool in the development of society.”
