Consensus Design and Environmental Design Consultancy Service

Axel Ewald offers professional environmental consultancy services for educational institutions, communities and public bodies. This includes site appraisal, design advice, conceptional and detailed planning and the conducting of 'Consensus Design' workshops. Consensus Design is a participatory design process introduced by architect Christopher Day which facilitates full participation of a commited group of local community members (for instance a college of teachers). It includes a careful observation of the site (following the Goethean phenomenological approach), consideration of its present and future potential and a carefully designed process towards a communally agreed design.
