CoCoon-Studio contributed a case study article to ‘The DesignBuild Studio’ edited by Tolya Stonorov, Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont, USA, recently published by Routledge.

The Design Build Studio examines sixteen international community driven design-build case studies through process and product, with preceding chapters on community involvement, digital and handcraft methodologies and a graphic Time Map. Together these projects serve as a field guide to the current trends in academic design-build studios. Design-build supports the idea that building, making and designing are intrinsic to each other: knowledge of one strengthens and informs the expression of the other. Hands on learning through the act of building what you design, translates theories and ideas into real world experience.
