Author 1:

  • Concept 1
    • add you definition here with 2-3 concise sentences. Do not copy paste text from others, use your own words. Make reference to resources used.
  • Concept 2
    • .....
  • Concept 3
    • ....

Author 2: Edvin Memić

  • Concept 1
    • If several people have different opinions about something, does that mean that they need to seek a compromise, although the compromis is kind of giving up from own opinions. But if it will lead to a better situation in general, this is not a bad solution. (Day, Christopher (2002): Consensus Design, Architectural Press)
  • Concept 2
    • Voting is not good because of the fact that majority opinion is used, while minority opinion is rejected, although sometimes it may be better. (Day, Christopher (2002): Consensus Design, Architectural Press)
  • Concept 3
    • Consensus is best for making decisions. When a consensus is reached, the decision is made step by step, the opinion of individuals is reconsidered, and the best solution for the group is accepted. Although it takes more time. (Day, Christopher (2002): Consensus Design, Architectural Press)

Author 4: Melanie Schnürer

  • Essential features (Welk Von Mossner, Alexa (2014): Cinematic Landscapes, In: Topos, No. 88, 2014.)
    • Essential features of a narrative film are, besides the natural and built environment, also the authenticity of the landscape, which plays an active role in a fiction film. "Beasts of the Southern Wild" (a film by Benh Zeitlin) is a good example for such a cinematic narrative.
  • The space (Welk Von Mossner, Alexa (2014): Cinematic Landscapes, In: Topos, No. 88, 2014.)
    • The space, which represents the cinematic environment, is the space in which the action takes place; in the film language this is called "setting". This room has to be carefully constructed, and for the cinematic environment all kinds of tricks are used.
  • Realization of a visually spectacular backdrop (Welk Von Mossner, Alexa (2014): Cinematic Landscapes, In: Topos, No. 88, 2014.)
    • In the past, a landscape was created on a soundstage of a film studio for the realization of a visually spectacular backdrop for a narrative; today such scenes are replaced by computer animations. The actors shoot in front of a green screen.
  • City and urban design framework (Storytelling example from the Scottish Islands)
    • For cities, it is important to gain an overview by creating an urban design framework that can be used to coordinate the existing projects and then use this as the basis for future development documents and master plans for the individual sites.
  • Working with other studies and initiatives (Storytelling example from the Scottish Islands)
    • WMUDs, which had created the urban design framework, worked in parallel with other studies and initiatives (e.g. Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI), Pierhead Project) to submit a proposal to the city on how to improve the contrasts between the individual elements.
  • Future of the city (Storytelling example from the Scottish Islands)
    • In order to obtain a good result, for the future of the city, one must think about various questions, e.g. How does the city look like in a few years?; How can other districts be integrated? ... Such questions are answered either positively or negatively. Sometimes a compromise must be sought for some questions.
