Our Design and Planning Process
COMMUNITY PARTICIPATORY PROCESS
At IDS+A, we use a Charette process throughout our planning process. This is used to explore possible solutions for challenging issues in a community, institution, facility or neighborhood in a short period of time. It is an intensive workshop or series of workshop sessions conducted “on site” in which participants gain an understanding of their shared community issues, infrastructure, historical precedents, and other resources so that design solutions can be considered and presented. Participants include design professionals, administration, staff, various stakeholders and community members. This collaboration allows the various groups of community members to contribute to creating a place that is responsive to their needs.
