Abstract

Co-design seeks to encourage ordinary people who are not trained in design to get involved in making design decisions. It is important to understand how the participant’s culture affects the design process, to ensure they can maximize their creative potential. Moreover, when experimenting with the application of co-design practice outside of a Western context, it is imperative to establish how and why different culture may shape it. This article is a part of ongoing research on co-design methods conducted in Indonesia and the UK. In this article, we specifically describe the result finding of field study in an Indonesian context. The findings provide insights on how the collective culture of Indonesian kampung society influences the co-design process. We conclude that it is necessary to revive the collective values of community when applying co-design methods. The conclusion of this field study is an important point for comparison with the findings garnered from UK contexts.
