Collisions during the design process yield a positive and powerful energy that is crucial to creating a high-performance workplace. The fundamental understanding of collisions involves the interaction of particles (atoms and molecules) that results in the transformation of energy and, more broadly, has systemic and structural implications beyond itself. In practice, PDR advances this concept during the discovery and design phases to enable and encourage collisions with and within the built environment. Successful work environments reflect collisions of exchange, culture, geometry, practice, and elements. Considering these key components increases the chances of a collision being meaningful and productive. PDR creates elegant solutions to complex client challenges by creating and incorporating best practices in interior architecture and design—and by adopting the fundamental building blocks of our universe. PDR walks the reader through these interdisciplinary concepts in a clear, comprehensive and highly illustrated process. This impressive book will resonate with all who are innovative thinkers and seekers of functionally responsive design. Focusing on both tangible and intangible themes, Collisions will provide designers and work culture professionals alike with a rich source of inspiration.
