Creating the Difference

Experience Centered Design of Energy Interventions for Shared Student Accommodation

Linehan, Foster, Lawson, Schoonheyt, & Heintze present an experience-centred design of interventions to motivate reduced energy consumption in pre-paid rented accommodations. The paper describes their research and design method, based on large-scale participatory design, that aimed to elicit experiential and reflective data in order to inform the design process by identifying experiences, perceptions, attitudes, behaviours, challenges, and opportunities.
