The arki_toolbox is a diverse collection of all the tools and methods that are designed or utilized by arki_lab. These tools and methods assist the users throughout the project from the initial site analysis to the actual building.
The tools are described in an easy step-by-step way on a Method Card within the Toolbox, along with all the materials needed to use the tools. The tools are divided according to the three overall phases in a design project; the Discovery phase where you make your initial analysis, the Dream phase where you generate and develop ideas, and finally the Design phase where you finalize designs and turn them into concrete plans. Here the trick comes, because the idea of the tool box is to make the workshop participants become designers themselves by trying out all the different tools and using them to develop their own projects. We stand aside and gently guide them through the process, but the work is theirs to do.
