Design also draws insights from different disciplines such as health and culture. The book includes eighteen situated design methods with cases and analysis of projects such as urban spaces and environmental systems. It describes methods for defining and organizing a design project, organizing collaborative processes, creating aesthetic experiences, and incorporating sustainability into processes and projects.
