Christopher Hume gives the Community Wellbeing Framework a critical nod

It’s not the answers that matter, it’s the questions.

Christopher Hume published his thoughts about the soon to be released Community Wellbeing Framework in Toronto Storeys. The article, based on an interview with Antonio Gomez-Palacio and Craig Applegath, states that “For city builders — whether they are politicians, planners, developers, architects or engineers — asking the right questions is the most crucial component of the process.”

Mr. Hume asked some valid and tough questions himself at a recent ULI presentation. His critique provokes us to continually develop the thinking around this important tool. The article is an encouraging acknowledgement that this Framework is asking the right questions, and has the potential to contribute to a cultural shift in thinking about how design can impact community wellbeing.

Image: DIALOG | The Framework is comprised of domains, indicators and metrics. Together, these pieces provide a pathway to complete community wellbeing. This visual tool, the Community Wellbeing Wheel, presents an at-a-glance view of the indicators that fall under each domain. Used to educate users around the high-level structure of the Framework, the Wheel is most commonly utilized at DIALOG as a conversation starter to begin the discussion about designing for community wellbeing.
