Living Design Process

Living Design Process

Designing and creating our way back home to life

Welcome... an exploration of these questions:

What would it look and feel like if the processes we used to design and create were as deeply alive as possible?

What kind of process can reliably create beautiful spaces, places, and moments that brim with life and function and flow as harmonious wholes?

Living Design Process (LDP) is a practical design process philosophy. It can be used to guide the design, development and retrofit of anything – at any scale and at any stage of prior development.

LDP is sourced beneath conventional separations, meaning it is at once rigorous and intuitive, beautiful and functional, theoretical and practical, generic and specific, boundaried and wide open.

It is inspired by the work of radical architect Christopher Alexander who saw healthy living process “as a budding, as a flowering, as an unpredictable, unquenchable unfolding through which the future grows from the present in a way that is dominated by the goodness of the moment.”

LDP has been developed and is being practiced daily by a group of international collaborators.

It is unconventional.

You cannot fully grasp LDP outside actually experiencing it. You cannot hire an expert to do LDP for you. You can engage a process mentor or guide to show you the ropes, but it cannot work unless you yourself are committed to being fully and proactively involved in the process.

If you are open to what might just become the learning journey of a lifetime, where you are integrally involved in shaping what happens, where the process changes you as much as anything else, where the most surprisingly beautiful outcomes arise from the most unexpected places, and where there is intentionally no masterplan, then you have come to the right place.
