This chapter explores the derivation, uses and contexts of languaging as a tool for designing, and outlines a metadesign languaging tool Codefine (Lockheart, 2016) as an example. Codefine is part of a tool set which highlights the playful languaging process within metadesign. We have found these tool sets achieve co-creative outcomes at the same time as building team consensus and fostering bonds of mutual attachment and support. They also assist new teams in the collective, empathic journey from ‘me-to-we’. Metadesign tools are intended to slow down team communication processes so that meanings are not assumed, rather they are agreed to suit a situated time, place and purpose. The chapter shows how one such tool can greatly enhance interdisciplinarity, open spaces of global exchange, re-envision and reshape the design process.
