Collective Design Process for Old Grace Housing Co-operative

As part of the CDP workshop given by our architect Dudley Thompson of Prairie Architects on November 22nd, 2014, the Old Grace Housing Co-operative would like to share its Collective Design Process Document and Working Plans publicly.


The CDP exercise took place with 8 separate groups, each made up of a random mix of members, Wolseley residents, supporters and other stakeholders. Groups were facilitated by Old Grace members and were asked to complete a workbook of options related to the neighbourhood preferences, membership (ie. potential resident’s use) context, and the makeup of the site. Although general, the analysis comments will show, some clear preferences and mandates emerge from this design process.
