How do I determine if my project fits within the scope of ‘design’?
The term ‘design’ can encompass a broad range of project types and activities, as described in the RFP. Design projects are those with a physical impact or scope – that could include the design of a street, a building, an art project, a plaza, or broader community design. Design also suggests the need for a process to shape those physical changes. Design is not about building a project; it’s about shaping what the project will look like, how it will function, and the impact that its physicality will have. Proposed design projects can be process-oriented (for example, engaging stakeholders to create a vision for a design project) or more physically focused (for example, developing specific design drawings, sketches, or concepts) for the workshop.
