With the inclusion of not only users but stakeholders of many different kinds, design processes turn into complex collaborative processes. The improvement of design practices require research into how people participate and contribute in social interaction. Research methods for understanding such activities tend to be highly analytical and hence difficult for design researchers to engage with, if results are meant to be actionable. Through a series of experiments we develop tangible support for a ‘designerly’ interaction analysis of an important aspect of collaborative design activities: The participatory structures.
