EwingCole uses a first-of-its-kind design research app, DOTT®, to capture, quantify, and visualize the intersections of people, place, and process. The results inform optimal design and operational decision-making. DOTT® provides a visual summary of observations of workers, students, doctors, patients, or whomever is using the built space under analysis. Patterns of use and workflow are uncovered. DOTT® simultaneously associates these observations with a set of pre-determined variables to generate quantitative data for further analysis by our design team. Developed by EwingCole, DOTT ® was created to streamline design research with the goal of facilitating efficient and meaningful design solutions. Using design research to inform and validate our Human-Centered Idea-Driven architecture results in healthier environments for our clients.
