Yen Trinh: designing for happiness


The design solutions don’t belong to the designer, but rather the community they inspire and enable. Building community participation into design solutions involves designing systems not just objects. Yen Trinh explores a number of local and international projects that enable communities to contribute and transform their own urban public places.

Yen is a Brisbane urbanist and designer. She is passionate about urban spaces, community building and collaborative design and has worked for design firms, non-profits and government, in Australia, Toronto and New York. Yen is the 2011 Qld Premier’s Emerging Design Leader Award recipient.
