When design is responsive...

March 15th, 2014, 1pm

I know, you are probably thinking : Isn’t this the same guy who wrote , ” When design is not responsive…”  ? Well it is me. This time around I want to illustrate an example of a good design. One that responds to the actual need, so much so that people just love using it and humanize it.

This bridge is a very old one. I remember walking it even at the age of 6. It holds so many memories for me

The Kaneshie highway crossbridge is an example of an artefact designed to function and respond to a need. The bridge is exactly where you want it to be . It leads straight into the market and the main commercial transport station. You have access to everything by the bridge. ![The cross bridge]

People enjoy the function of the bridge so much, they’ve humanized it. It has become the preacher man’s podium, the petty trader’s stand and the beggar’s corner .

I write. I sketch. I mull over things and I think about alternatives. http://incitedrafts.wordpress.com @sammidelali
