We did not believe that campus workspaces met the needs of all Carnegie Mellon students; exacerbating the stress of academic life and inhibiting concentration. Through in-depth research we developed a framework to build a great communal workspace. This project was an exercise in design research methods, and we leveraged generative making sessions as well as quantitative data gathering and surveys.

We built our own collection of wood and foam blocks to engage with research participants in designing workspaces at the desk-scale and space-scale
