The Design Bus
Developed by lehner gunther in 2006 the DesignBus enables a new form of working on architectural projects with communication and participation as goal. Using this traveling and conspicuous architectural office the architect designs on site. Inhabitants and users are addressed in a low-key manner: they drop by the bus and converse with the architect. Stories and peculiarities of a site shape the design-process – an added value for the design and for future users.
lehner gunther has worked successfully on projects with the Design Bus including the design of a new centre for Rijsenhout in collaboration with inhabitants and the village council, restructuring entire neighborhoods in Alkmaar Noord with inhabitants, the municipality and housing corporation Woonwaard (realized in 2007-2011) and various educational projects
