Transformative Design

The Ralston Bau studio process follows a transformative design model to anchor the project in an effective and inclusive context. It includes five phases that are explained below and constitute the navigation of our website.

Big picture

Problematic being in a broader context and with a meta perspective, we explore the peripheries of the project area, community trends and the regeneration system.

People

We meet people, extreme users and professional stake holders in this specific context, observe and interrogate in order to obtain surprising insights on essential needs that are still unknown.

Scenario

Circular narratives give rise to complex ideas. The issues and stakeholders are described in a temporal rhythm, with spatial solutions taking the form of services or products, temporary or permanent.

Prototype and test

We first visualize these scenarios through simple installations and objects, allowing quick testing of their usefulness and functionality, for important learning and quick decision-making.

Form

We then design common indoor and outdoor spaces and their essential objects.
