This co-edited book presents qualitative research about inter-disciplinary experiential approaches to urban design. MEUL argues for a shift from object- to process-led design priorities, based on testing of a proposed design framework in Belfast. The book is published by PLACE Ltd (Planning, Landscape, Architecture, Community, Environment), Northern Ireland’s Architecture and Built Environment Centre. It is distributed through an international network of architecture centres, universities, and professional and government bodies. The Foreword is by internationally award-winning architect Liza Fior, muf architecture/art.The joint research involved over 200 people (future professionals, existing practitioners, business and government representatives, and local people in Belfast). During a series of public workshops, multi-media installations, and exhibitions throughout 2011-2012, data was gathered. Documentation includes photography, video and drawings with feedback from interviews and anonymous surveys. Several co-authored peer-reviewed publications and international conference presentations in the UK and Ireland support this output and contribute to MEUL’s co-authored Introduction and Conclusions. Golden, in a sole-authored chapter examines gaps in architects’ skills and knowledge and proposes how architects’ tacit design knowledge can positively influence local regeneration initiatives.
