The second volume in the ‘Chapters’ series from Brussels-based architecture firm 51N4E focuses on how design processes can be shaped through dialogue. First, it investigates their work together with two design-focused consulting firms, endeavour (Antwerp) and Denkstatt (Basel), wherein all three explore the boundaries of architecture, advocating openness and dialogue with clients and users as opposed to autonomy and monologue.
The book’s second part examines the hidden presence of this “design in dialogue” approach in a wide range of European architecture firms and their projects, illustrating how this can create productive momentum and foster engagement.
