A Visit to the Kölner Dom

Conceptual design thinking drawn from deep understandings of life experiences.

This project is about developing understandings of everyday human experiences.

Using a new research method, the Taxonomy of Experience (ToE), research data was collected, categorised and filtered to reveal the most important elements of the experience. The ToE aims to enable designers to better understand an experience so they can design for it.

The experience of visiting Cologne's cathedral was chosen because it is unique to the city.
