* The new urban Agenda defined by the United Nations in 2015 in Quito declares to encourage nations to develop sustainable, safe, healthy, inclusive and secure cities. Besides these topics the it should be a city for all people, the „right to city“ is important. Cities should have more participation, social functions, civic engagement, gender equality age- and gender-responsive planning and resilience by 2050 when it is expected that the world population has doubled and most people will live in cities.

File:Ouarzazate 3.jpg|caption: Ouarzazate Solar Power Station (OSPS), also called Noor Power Station  is a solar power complex located in the Drâa-Tafilalet region in Morocco, 10 kilometres  from Ouarzazate town, in Ghessat rural council area. The entire Solar Project is planned to produce 580 MW at peak when finished and is being built in three phases and in four parts.

File:Ouarzazate-solar-plant.jpg| '''The extensive use of water''': The technology chosen for the Ouarzazate solar plant is the concentrated thermal solar power (CSP) with parabolic troughs. The biggest issue with this technology is the extensive use of water that comes with the wet cooling stage. Unlike photovoltaic (PV) technology, CSP needs cooling. This is done either by air cooled condensers (dry cooling) or high water-consumption (wet cooling). Water consumption will be much less in the case of a dry cooling (planned for phase II): between 0.73 and 0.88 million cubed meters. PV technologies require water only for cleaning solar panels. They consume about 200 times less water than CSP technology with wet cooling and forty times less water than CSP with dry cooling

File:LEDAssignment4AQUINOMangroves1.jpeg|caption: “As Mexicans, it hurts us to witness that instead of using the public force against criminals, they are using it against citizens and against the environment. It is truly embarrassing to see that the government is doing this, to see that it does not have either political nor social sensitivity. Miguel Rivas, who heads the organization's coastal campaigns, said that the Tajamar case is "emblematic" of the struggle to protect mangroves in Mexico. Several landscape symbols and Social Issues are being seriously affected by the actions of corrupted politicians and companies, the use of police and military forces to protect private interest have us retracted in any effort to protest or demand.

File:LEDAssignment4AQUINOMangroves2.jpeg|caption: I chose Malecon Tajamar mangroves because is emblematic of the struggle to protect nature against a corrupted government, Mangroves are supposed to be protected by law. This mangrove area of 143 acres of mangrove forest was destroyed in order to build offices, apartments, shopping malls, and a huge church in the luxury resort of Cancún. When the project was dusted off again last year, activists responded with legal efforts to get it temporarily suspended. These included an injunction promoted by 113 local children that was granted in September but then lifted after a judge ordered the kids to pay 20 million pesos (just over $1 million dollars) in compensation to the companies involved. (Society against corrupted government) Activists were unable to prevent the clearing of the area that began at 2am on Saturday and finished around dawn. Bulldozers, cranes and dump trucks were protected by 140 state and municipal police officers sent to ensure that the protesters did not get in the way.

Image:yourname_challenge_1.jpg|caption: why did you select this case?
+
File:Democratic change process cara frey wagnisart.jpg| WagnisArt is an exemplary project in residential building in Germany that tried to find another way in solving the problem of rising rents and expensive property prices in growing cities. Building a cooperative helped not only to find an affordable housing while it also brought the people together and founded a strong community.
Image:yourname_challenge_2.jpg|caption: what is the issue/conflict (1)
+
File:Democratic change process cara frey wagnisart2.jpg| The conflict that lead to this project is the situation of high land prices and rising rents. Politics has much work to do by creating affordable housing for everyone. Investors often are mostly interested in building high priced projects that are about to make a lot of profits. People who were looking for a housing or were unhappy with their living situation came together and found a cooperative to build a residence together.
Image:yourname_challenge_3.jpg|caption: what is the issue/conflict (2)
+
File:Democratic change process cara frey wagnisart3.jpg| Families with kids, seniors, apartment hunters, couples, and interested people came together to build the cooperative called Wagnis that got more than 1600 members. They are about to create their eight project in Munich and forming a counterpoint to real estate developers. All projects are developed intensively from phase 0 with the people that are going to live there once which is a big feature in participation.
Image:yourname_challenge_4.jpg|caption: who are the actors?
+
File:Democratic change process cara frey wagnisart4.jpg|WagnisArt has won many prices because it's so special: it's honored with the german landscape architecture price in participative planning 2017, with the german city planning price 2016, recognition in german architecture price 2017 and the german sustainability award in 2018. In the process of development there was a high level of participation, all the future inhabitants decided together which design they want to choose and what the architects should change. In the building there are a lot of community areas like for example a cafe, a laundry room, a workshop, many roof gardening terraces but people still got their private zones.
Image:yourname_challenge_5.jpg|caption: UN's Sustainable Development Goal?
+
File:Democratic change process cara frey wagnisart5.jpg| The main sustainable goal that is fulfilled in this project is number 11 of sustainable cities and communities. Furthermore I think there can also be related number 3: wellbeing (livability), number 7: affordable energy (high building standards and photovoltaik), number 9: infrastructure (most inhabitants are sharing a car or using green infrastructure), number 12: responsible consumption (roofgardening and sharing), and number 16: peace and strong institutions (cause you can really feel that these people that are living there do have a very intense and peaceful institution)

  • Each group will also report on their process to come to a set of shared definitions of key landscape democracy concepts on the wiki documentation until June 20, 2018

Concepts and definitions

Author 1: Luis Aquino

  • Enabling the Form. Caring. It is a powerful value among people and place relation, this guarantee the sustainability of the landscape. We must provide the tools to the citizens to increase the general attention to specific spaces and to raise the awareness of the core values of the zone. Engage the population through active participation and investment of effort upon it. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sustainable Happiness. Randolph T Hester, Jr.
  • Resilient the Form. Finding Fish Heads. Fish heads can be old buildings, historical events, trash or abandoned uses; they can be scenic beauty, retired people or everyday real work. Fish heads concept come from the fishery industry that turns up the common understanding that the fish heads were regarded as useless into productive matter. Entrepreneurs began reusing abandoned buildings for surfing-related products and services. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sustainable Happiness. Randolph T Hester, Jr.
  • Impelling the Form. Active Responsibility. In order to achieve sustainable cities, it requires active citizen participation, active human nature towards sharing and collaboration in the creation process. We as planners must prosecute users to participate into administrative on-going models, leading appart self-interests and selfish attitudes. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sustainable Happiness. Randolph T Hester, Jr.

Author 2: Bruna Spagnol

  • Designs and drawings are mere lines if they don’t have a meaning for the population, so it’s necessary to combine forces between the general public and the designers. Sketching, painting and modelling are some tools used to communicate an idea in a specific and distinctive way, but common sense and nature should be used to provide answers to the community problems. (Hester, R., Democratic Drawing)
  • In order to “read” a landscape, we must understand the process of its formation, the development of the area and all the pressures that worked there. You need to take into consideration its aesthetics, visual and sensorial characteristics along with the geomorphological, but also the perception that community gets from it, which varies from each one. ('Reading the Landscape' by Simon Bell)

Author 3: Sara Yousefi Mashhour

  • Shared Values of Specific Culture

Culture structures landscape and at the same time it is embodied by landscape (a 2 sided relationship).In one hand landscape challenges and ecological framework influence our common way of living over generations and in another hand perception, cognition and evaluation of human beings are based upon the filter which their culture and values provide. Therefore culture and the shared values are shaping our preferences, knowledge and feelings toward landscape which influence our decisions and behaviors toward it and our behaviors and decisions are working within the fundamental ecological framework of the terrain. (Nassauer, Joan. Culture and changing landscape structure)

  • Social Inclusion in Designing Process

All social groups (different genders, ages, social classes, ethnic groups), even the most marginalized and outsider ones in one community (such as immigrants) should be involved in designing process through methods which can create comfortable, trusting and empathetic atmosphere and facilitate communications and self-expressions in order to enriching design visions. (Salgado, Mariana et al. Designing with immigrants)

  • Ladder of Participation

In order to involve locals in designing process there is a range of involvement which begins with informing and continues with introducing, consultation and Dialogue and ends with Participation and Citizen Control as the highest level of involvement. Each of these phases has several methods to follow up based on your budget, time, goals and the target community. (European Convention. LIFEscape Handbook on Participative Landscape Planning)

Author 4: Aicha Mouisat

  • Constructing Landscape Conceptions (Kucan, Ana (2007).

The landscape identity is related to the concept of the nation. Landscapes are created through the reciprocal interaction between the space and the individuals or the society who change the space. This human intervention in the space leads to a social conception of this space which is formed in the process of the social communication (collective identity and historical memory).

  • Design for Ecological Democracy (Hester, Randolph (2006).

Ecological democracy is government by the people through active involvement. To reform our cities we can act as communities and not divide. We need to reform our cities to be ecologically resilient, to empel us by joy rather than compel us by insecurity, fear and force.

  • Consensus Design (Day, Christopher (2002):

Voting is not the best way to get consensus. We can only do this if we can step back from the ideas, opinions and strong feelings most people start with. In design, the ‘whole situation’ includes buildings, the place where they will be and the people who will use them. As a designer we should not ignore the emotion which is very important because when we know how people feel we will understand what they need.


Author 5: Cara Frey

  • The new urban Agenda defined by the United Nations in 2015 in Quito declares to encourage nations to develop sustainable, safe, healthy, inclusive and secure cities. Besides these topics the it should be a city for all people, the „right to city“ is important. Cities should have more participation, social functions, civic engagement, gender equality age- and gender-responsive planning and resilience by 2050 when it is expected that the world population has doubled and most people will live in cities. The New Urban Agenda Quito Declaration on Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements for All, UN resolution from December 2016
  • The crisis of special areas can be pictured in films, by choosing a narrative landscape. This place is often carefully selected or sometimes constructed by set designers, while fiction films have got more freedom in the invention of landscapes then documentaries do. The movie „Beasts of the Southern Wild“ from 2015 is showing the crisis landscape and the process of slow violence in the life of Hushpuppy, who is living in slum conditions and is affected by a flood. This film exposes the racial, gender and economic power dynamics that led to the emergence of the actual crisis landscape in the bayous of Louisiana. Welk Von Mossner, Alexa (2014): Cinematic Landscapes
  • Stadtspieler is a strategic board game for 4-6 persons were the players are about to build the city they can imagine by shaping it with plasticine. They are trying out different roles like being an investor, a city planner or a dweller. The game has four phases and ends by asking the question „which building has the most future potential?“ and choosing a winner. Stadtspieler was developed to make players to actors and to change their way of thinking. It is often played on exhibitions or for education with students. Stadtspieler, www.stadtspieler.com
