Design for Impact cover
Summary
This booklet documents Enterprise’s beta test of an interdisciplinary outcomes-based design methodology, and illustrates how the process can strengthen design interventions at multiple scales and for specific, targeted purposes.
Description

Regardless of your intent and the outcomes, there is always a social impact associated with every design project. Design, and architectural design in particular, affects the physical environment and our experience in it – either negatively or positively. Because of this, design shares common ground with fields that are working to affect the determinants of population well-being, such as public health, education and community development, through their programming. 

To advance this concept of cross-sector collaboration to use design to improve health and social outcomes, Enterprise has beta-tested an interdisciplinary outcomes-based design methodology with three Rose Architectural Fellows – Alexis Smith, Annie Ledbury and Stephen Klimek – and consultants ISA and HealthxDesign. The Design for Impact booklet documents the beta-testing process and illustrates ways in which the process can strengthen design interventions at multiple scales and for targeted purposes.
