Design Role: Systemizing: Xianqiao Village

Systemizing
(activities oriented towards organising synergies and multiplication effects between the different single projects of elements of the project…)

This design action was about linking design solutions in a local system, creating mutual connection and relating them to the external environment. Here the design role has been to organize the project services network. This meant finding design solutions to connect the different services and to understand how they could support one another and to frame a consistent scenario.

Systematizing proceeded by finding synergies between analogous, complementary and compatible activities. These has been obtained by:

- sharing some operation and infrastructures and creating a critical mass;
- understanding if there are output of one activity that can become input for another one
- understanding which solutions, if combined, can generate mutual virtuous savings and reinforcement.

The result of this activity has been the map of synergies reported below.
