The potential to use gamification to develop a digital platform for multi-user-oriented housing design.

Sky Lo’s research looks at participatory design of residential buildings in a high-rise, high-density urban context.

People’s multi-faceted social needs are mostly neglected when ‘one design fits all’ housing design is used. Participatory design provides a great opportunity to counter this issue, yet its practice is seldom undertaken.

The aim of this research is to look at gamification as a strategy, integrated into a digital platform to engage the individual families in the design process to fulfil their needs.
