More general meaning[edit]

fyi Although I haven't worked on this article, I'm thinking of rearranging and slightly altering these paragraphs to make the entry more generic. This is a favorite word of mine that I, and my friends, have for 30 years used to refer to mean *any* intense work effort -- although we knew of course of that its main use was in art and architecture schools and institutes, and its origin at the Ecole de Beaux-Art.

Still the opening seems to partially reduce a common general word to a more specialized use. I said "charrette" in 1978 for a session to finish a computer program, and similarly ever since. The immediate almost exclusive emphasis on designers, urban planning, etc. seems weird to me. Is this NCI thing hijacking the word?

Sure go ahead. The Random House dictionary[1] supports that the word can be used in the general sense, but emphasize the current common use of the word. Samw 04:05, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Enquiry by design?[edit]

The term "enquiry by design" is sort of tossed off and I think it could use a bit of explanation. It could mean...

-- inquiring about stakeholder views by getting feedback on sample designs,

-- deliberately, pro-actively soliciting feedback rather than waiting for it,

-- or basing design on stakeholder input.

(In the last case would the term "design by inquiry" be a better fit?)

BTW: The Wikipedia spelling checker seems to prefer "inquiry" to "enquiry" but it doesn't seem to recognize "Wikipedia" either!

A quick Google search gives several examples of what the term "enquiry by design" can mean, but leave me no wiser as to why it is called "enquiry by design". Three theories:
  1. It means designing the process of enquiry into what the stakeholders want, not just designed the buildings and public spaces (or other finished product).
  2. It means we involve the stakeholders in the design process. i.e. we enquire as to what they want by asking them to do some of the design, rather than giving them a questionnaire, or something like that.
  3. At one time it meant one of the above, but that has since been lost in the mists of time. Now it just means "what people mean when they say enquiry by design".
BTW, Wikipedia has no spell checker. The problem must be with your web browser.

Facebook campus charrette[edit]

Just, wow http://www.almanacnews.com/news/show_story.php?id=8423 71.202.19.96 (talk) 10:50, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Interesting example. It says "Anyone living within a half mile of Menlo Park probably knows the city will host a design "charrette" on Saturday, March 5, to create a fresh vision for the areas surrounding the new Facebook campus". Yaris678 (talk) 13:09, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Charette Procedure[edit]

This article details a procedure of sorts for doing a charette:

The Charette Procedure on mindtools.com

I like the fact that it is more specific about what needs to be done... but I'm not sure what it's provenance is.
