The truth of a space is intuitive, sensorial and kinesthetic. Spaces with truth have a generosity of spirit which can impact and transform. Designing with truth allows teams to easily differentiate between truth and non-truth when using a style taxonomy devoid of personal preferences.

• Utilizing the methodology, assess a project and identify its style position.
• Analyze the touchpoints.
• Where and how is project in alignment with style position?
• Where and how is project out of alignment with style position?
Learning Objective Ste 3
• Describe the essence of the project in 2-5 sentences.
• Support description with visuals.
• Predict experiential need/needs generated by selected style position.
Learning Objective 4
Using a style taxonomy and visual lexicon for efficient team communication, participants will identify a style position, verify out of alignment touch points and propose a solution. The proposed solution will include a recommendation for site, materials, furniture and/or experiential need/needs identified style position may create.
