Master´s thesis | MA Program in Collaborative and Industrial Design | Department of Design | Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture

User involvement in its varied forms is becoming a reality in many building projects. The year 2020 marks a rise of service design in the context of building planning in Finland as new guidelines in the building and real estate industries were introduced by a respected Building Information group. . . .
