Dialogue workshop for using Pattern Languages for supporting everyday life

Organizers: Takashi Iba

Dates: September 20th, 2022

Abstract: Pattern language, which was originally invented in the field of architectural design, applied to software design, and then developed into the design of actions and activities, has recently expanded into the area of lifestyle and life design. In this PLoPourri, we will take up some of the pattern languages recently created by Iba Lab and use them in a Dialogue Workshop. IN the Dialogue Workshops, we will talk together about experiences of the participants themselves that are connected to the patterns, and use this as a reference for our own pattern practice by learning about the actual practice and gaining a deeper understanding of the content of the patterns. The following patterns will be covered in this session (participants will choose one of the patterns to participate).

  • A Pattern Language for Nurturing an Exciting Life
  • A Pattern Language for Nature-based Child Care
  • A Pattern Language for Living and Caring Together

Those who wish to attend should register using the form that will be set up about two months before the event. Shortly before the event date, we will send you a summary of each pattern language. The workshop will be held via Zoom.
