Whether it be a one-off site visit or an extended program of learning, carefully orchestrated participatory processes can enrich a project with the latent knowledge held by its stakeholders.

At the heart of the process is learning and enabling; if a client or user's ambitions are to be harnessed those people need to be informed and articulate in a design language that they can use to communicate with. Of course, with a developed sense of spatial knowledge also comes an increased confidence and connection with the world at large.
