From the Author: Hide & Seek Inspiration:

Visitors to the frequently ask us where we find inspiration for the spaces we design. Here are a few places we look:

-- Retail Experiences

Restaurants, Hotels, & Stores
Restaurants & boutique hotel lobbies are almost unparalleled in the moods they create. Retail stores are full of display implementations that can be co-opted for display of creative work.

Specialty Hardware Retailers
Marine hardware outlets, antique hardware stores, and industrial kitchen suppliers stock all manner of novel gadgets to inspire new possibilities.

-- Public Gathering Places

Parks & Playgrounds
Endless interactions of all sorts occur in these spaces that provide insight into natural postures and the nuances of group interactions.

Airports & Parking Garages
Guiding travelers is a door-to-door experiment in designing way-finding. Parking garages in particular feature innovative uses of signage, color coding, and memory cues.

-- Places Where Things Are Made

Prep Kitchen & Food Trucks
Food prep is creative work that occurs under great time pressure. Cooks consitently invent ways to produce during the constraints of a mad dinner rush.

Sound Stages & Theaters
Sound stages are designed to support the realization of imagination. Everything about them is tuned to support the construction of novel designs.

-- Learning Environments

Museums & Galleries
Art is inspirational but so are the galleries themselves. Gallery spaces are constantly reconfigured to adapt for the needs of a show.

Pre-schools & Kindergartens
Learning environments for young kids are one of the few places where physicality is embraced -- kids love to move around. These spaces are also full of materials to engage in playful building activities.
-- Service Industries
Emergency rooms in particular are filled with clever solutions to coordinate action among staff and service the often complex emotional needs of patients.

Repair Shops
Bike mechanics, oil-change garages, tailors, and shoe repair shops all have unique tools & configurations for optimizing space, time, and money.

From the Inside Flap:

make space is about creative spaces and about creating spaces. Space is more than just the physical environment.

Five types of content are mixed into the book.

Enter from whatever direction suits your needs:

stuff to build

quick, repeatable configurations

ideas to consider

design template
a simple breakdown of how the properties of places can spark actions and attitudes in people

space studies
true stories about making space and living in it

The more than 100 mini-entries in this book will help you slice through this complexity and jump from inspiration to action: make an existing space more collaborative, conceive of new creative work spaces, and design learning environments from scratch.

This guiding content emerged from a five-year experiment at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (aka the "") and from continuous (but jovial) poking and prodding of countless students, faculty, visitors, and project partners.

Scott Doorley and Scott Witthoft are directors of the Environments Collaborative at Stanford University's—the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. With the's support, they have prepared make space as a tool for everyone interested in designing and creating environments to support creative collaboration.

Scott Doorley's work focuses on how physical context and digital media can benefit human experience.

His installations with the Dacha Art Collective have been exhibited in the San Jose Museum of Art and the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts San Francisco. Currently he is the Creative Director at the Stanford, where he teaches classes in subjects at the intersection of design and media arts: storytelling and visual communication, improv, and digital media.
