Overview

What aspects of tangible objects used in the co-design process can be strategically designed to create affordances and metaphors that build trust and foster collaboration between different disciplines? 

GAME OF COLLABORATION

A. Role Play

Each of the players will pick up a role that will have different goals, they are not necessarily conflicting though. It is up to you and 3 other friends to work together (or not) to put these elements together to make a neighborhood.

B. Independent or Collaborate?

The neighborhood will consist of houses, apartments, civic buildings, and parks. If you decide to make the neighborhood by yourself, each of you will make a house. The more people you collaborate with, the more possible kinds of items you could make. But you have to negotiate to achieve your own goal.

C. Learn, Place, and Confirm

Each of the players will have three cards, the first one is the "role" card. It is the goal you want to achieve in the end, but others don't know. The second card is "Place" card, you negotiate with your teammate and if both(all) of you agreed on making one thing, you could place the card near each other to let the object appear. The third card is "Make" card, all of the players has to flip the card together to confirm your decision.
