Invading Cyprus with user-centred design
â€œOur goal is to give solutions on how these spaces could be used,â€ said designer Marina Hadjilouca, one of the founders and designers of Schedia, organisers of this weekendâ€™s Urban Invaders event.
Schedia was set up in December 2009 and focuses on user-centred designs, exploring how methods used within this area of design can improve urban regeneration, such as the transformation of the old town of Nicosia, as well as public and private places like libraries. This type of design is centred on the user, researching its characteristics and providing solutions that meet their needs, wishes and expectations. The process covers each stage of design, starting from the research involving the public to the outline of the idea and the development of the space.
