Abstract
This paper describes the concept of affordance supporting design goals, and maps the application of affordance in interaction design to place making. The example of walkability is examined, and the benefits of mapping between design domains are illustrated using a specific design technique (scenario bowties) to elicit affordances that promote walkability.
