Product description


"If you are determined to encourage creativity and provide a collaborative environment that will bring out the best in people, you will want this book by your side at all times. You can browse it for tools to enhance teamwork, configurations to enable activities, insights about communal behaviors, design templates and first person stories. The way we design our spaces can help us or hinder us, inspire new ideas or stifle them, make it easier to work together or set us apart. Discover here how to improve team dynamics by altering your physical environment."
-- Bill Moggridge, Director of the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum

From the Inside Flap

make space is about creative spaces and about creating spaces. Space is more than just the physical environment.

Five types of content are mixed into the book.

Enter from whatever direction suits your needs:

stuff to build

quick, repeatable configurations

ideas to consider

design template
a simple breakdown of how the properties of places can spark actions and attitudes in people

space studies
true stories about making space and living in it

The more than 100 mini-entries in this book will help you slice through this complexity and jump from inspiration to action: make an existing space more collaborative, conceive of new creative work spaces, and design learning environments from scratch.

This guiding content emerged from a five-year experiment at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (aka the "d.school") and from continuous (but jovial) poking and prodding of countless students, faculty, visitors, and project partners.

Scott Doorley and Scott Witthoft are directors of the Environments Collaborative at Stanford University's d.school--the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. With the d.school's support, they have prepared make space as a tool for everyone interested in designing and creating environments to support creative collaboration.

Scott Doorley's work focuses on how physical context and digital media can benefit human experience.

His installations with the Dacha Art Collective have been exhibited in the San Jose Museum of Art and the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts San Francisco. Currently he is the Creative Director at the Stanford d.school, where he teaches classes in subjects at the intersection of design and media arts: storytelling and visual communication, improv, and digital media.

Scott has degrees in film from the University of California, Los Angeles (BA '96) and learning, design, and technology from Stanford University (MA '06).
