Hospitality Design - November 2020 - 63

Storytelling is at the heart
of the exhibition center

Accomplished designers like Milton Curry are
represented in the biannual design journal Deem

Luther King Jr. Memorial
Library Washington, DC

that examines post-apartheid South Africa

Can human-centered design manifest from the urban
planning scale down to smaller hospitality projects?

Human-centered design is a key component of community design, and
community design is a social practice through the activation of physical
space for the communities that actually use them. At Openbox we focus
on how people want to live and work, not just the built environment.
How people actually use space is really important. Moving forward,
hospitality spaces have to become more flexible, more modular and
collaborative environments. No one goes to a hotel to sleep in a box or
goes to a restaurant to sit at a table. We want spaces that feed and nurture
and adapt to us. We are currently working with Curioso, a hospitality
design studio in Chicago founded by Nina Grondin and Daniel Pierce.
We partnered with them because they understand and value experience
design. Nina views design as a creative opportunity to build community.
She approaches the projects she works on from a business perspective, but
with a storyteller's point of view. Working with Curioso helps Openbox
expand the work we do.

How does design serve, or fail to serve, communities?

Spaces tell stories. When people don't see themselves in those spaces
and aren't involved in the design process, they don't see their stories told.
When people who are not part of the community tell the stories of others,
they misrepresent them. There is a real responsibility to bring in people
at the top layer when we are creating the master plan, the prototypes, the
blueprints. We need to bring in people from different walks of life-gender

advocate adrienne maree brown on the cover

and color-so those spaces represent the full vision of what it means to live in
community. Design is there to listen. The failure of design is when we don't,
and infer or make assumptions to check boxes instead of building insight
from the community. No longer can we build it for them and think they will
come. The idea now is that if you build it with them, they will come.

How does your work with Openbox intersect with Opendox?

Everything we do on the design side is about storytelling. Our work between
Openbox and Opendox is a circular economy of approach. We borrow from
each other. Our design work feeds into the context that builds out a film, and
our storytelling approach feeds into how we design a space.

What projects are you excited about?

We recently completed a project in Washington, DC with the Martin Luther
King Jr. Memorial Library. DC Public Library wanted to create a new exhibit
space that would be a home for local stories, past and present. To ensure that
the design met the needs and hopes of the community, [we went] through
eight months of generative design research and exhibition prototyping, and
delivered blueprints and a guidebook to provide a framework for community
engagement and a five-year plan for exhibition experiences. These plans aim
to sustain and elevate community-centered exhibits within the MLK Library.
I [also] recently launched a publication called Deem with my partners Alice
Grandoit and Nu Goteh, which centers design as a social practice. hd
