Designbuilding Empathy through Design Workflow Software and Designbuild Pedagogy


Kasey Vliet


Designbuilding Empathy combines the teaching of introductory design workflow software with designbuild pedagogy to provide opportunities for students to develop empathy for the construction process through physically making their designs. This paper argues that by integrating the design and analytical power of workflow software with the experiential, social and practical experiences of designbuild pedagogy, students will understand construction as a part of design, preparing them to be better collaborators and leaders upon entering the architecture profession.
