Abstract

The users of designed things provide input into design processes in various ways. In this article our attention is drawn to the actions of a group of residents as they examine and discuss the proposed design for a housing scheme, uncovering problems within it. It is the residents’ skills at spatial reasoning, as exhibited in their identification and formulation of design problems that are recovered and examined closely at an architectural event, and the ways that these observations are received. This study begins to probe ways that we recognise and acknowledge users’ actions in social interaction. In particular, in the ways that mundane reasoning features in the formulation of design problems and subsequent problem solving.
