Help keep DiscoverDesign a supportive learning environment
As part of our community, you are sharing your design projects and ideas with students, teachers, and architects, from many different places and cultures, and with all levels of experience. CAF has designed and provided this website to help you explore architectural design and to communicate the ideas about design projects that you develop. In turn, we need your help to make this community a supportive place for every participant. Here's how you can help:
- Respect the work and opinions of others. When sharing your design projects, keep in mind that many people of different ages and backgrounds will see your work, ideas, and comments.
- Offer constructive and specific comments. Ask questions. Instead of only criticizing a design project or simply saying that you do like it, please be specific and explain what you like about it and offer suggestions on how to make it better.
- Help keep the site friendly. If you or others would find comments or a design project mean, insulting, or otherwise inappropriate please flag the comment as inappropriate. You may also write to discoverdesign [at] architecture.org. We will review and may remove any design, project, user, username, or comment at our sole discretion.
