Transversal design processes, potentials and challenges

Petra Marguc

The transversal design process I am exploring is neither a bottom-up nor a top-down approach, but a continuous interaction between stakeholders coming from multiple horizons and having diverse, often opposite desires. A transversal design process can reveal latent resources, stimulate a project dynamic and federate parties around the improvement of their spatial environment. At the same time it challenges issues of shared language and the status of situations of exchange.A relational architecture begins to occur.
By critically reflecting upon my polimorph productions and putting them into perspective of an evolving community of practice, notions of conflict, navigating through a moving environment, data designed for decision, multiplicity, stimulation and response will be addressed.
