A live presentation at #DesignPopUp Belfast

by Gordon Yeaman, Michael Laird Architects

Transformational Stories – designing spaces for people

This event took place live on Tuesday, 12th September at 5.30 pm at the Belfast exhibition.

Read the write-up to catch up on all the insights revealed at the talk.

As designers and architects, we are taught to believe in the power of design. Power not only to delight and inspire but the power to send messages, create experiences and enable change. 

In today’s commercial world, we don’t often discover the difference our projects make to our clients, occupiers and communities.

At MLA we have woven the practice of Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) into our projects, and in doing so, we learn more about our project’s successes and challenges, which we share with our wider business.

Our POE practice involves measurement and conversation, and the combination of these has allowed us to unlock the transformational and often unpredictable benefits design can provide.

Using Case studies, Gordon Yeaman will share some of our experiences, and we look forward to a lively discussion afterwards.
