Abstract: Pattern language, which was originally invented in the field of architectural design, applied to software design, and then developed into the design of actions and activities, has recently expanded into the area of lifestyle and life design. In this PLoPourri, we will take up some of the pattern languages recently created by Iba Lab and use them in a Dialogue Workshop. In the Dialogue Workshops, we will talk together about the experiences of the participants themselves that are connected to the patterns, and use this as a reference for our own pattern practice by learning about the actual practice and gaining a deeper understanding of the content of the patterns. The following patterns will be covered in this session (participants will choose one of the patterns to participate).

  • A Pattern Language for Nurturing an Exciting Life — Each of us is nurturing an exciting life. Life is sometimes fun, sometimes sad, and we have overcome many events to get to where we are today. In this dialogue workshop, we will share our experiences of nurturing an exciting life using A Pattern Language for Nurturing an Exciting Life. Get inspiration for creating a future that is as you are, and think about what exciting life you want to nurture. 
  • A Pattern Language for Living and Caring Together — In this workshop, we will hold a dialogue for Think About Caring for Your Family. Now, Our world is now rapidly aging. As people get older, they often need someone to help. Even if we don’t get old, we may need care because of a sudden accident. Or, we may need care because of a sudden illness, like COVID‑19. It is never too early to talk about the care of your family.
