Making Places for People: 12 Questions Every Designer Should Ask, by Christie Coffin and Jenny Young

Christie Coffin and Jenny Young are co-authors of the book Making Places for People: 12 Questions Every Designer Should Ask

About Making Places for People, via Amazon:
Making Places for People explores twelve social questions in environmental design. Authors Christie Johnson Coffin and Jenny Young bring perspectives from practice and teaching to challenge assumptions about how places meet human needs. The book reveals deeper complexities in addressing basic questions, such as: What is the story of this place? What logic orders it? How big is it? How sustainable is it? Providing an overview of a growing body of knowledge about people and places, Making Places for People stimulates curiosity and further discussion. The authors argue that critical understanding of the relationships between people and their built environments can inspire designs that better contribute to health, human performance, and social equity―bringing meaning and delight to people’s lives.
