Book Publication from Martijn de Waal & Gabriele Ferri (AUAS)

Martijn de Waal’s & Gabriele Ferri’s (AUAS) book is published on human-centered design approaches.

During the Design & The City event, organised by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences in the spring of 2016, five leading design labs and centres from around the world were invited to showcase their ways of working in a series of hands-on design charrettes. This book documents these sessions and highlights a number of methods demonstrated. Together, they form a palette of possibilities to inspire designers, public administrators, businesses and citizens alike to explore a variety of human-centered design approaches.
