Concepts and definitions

Author 1: Amsal Mešić

  • Day, Christopher (2002): Consensus Design, Architectural Press: In a proper democracy, discussion should be valued more than mere voting. When several options are presented, mere voting can often lead to the dissatisfaction of the majority. Discussion, on the other hand, leads to a consensus on which design would suit everyone's needs and desires or at least it can produce a viable compromise.
  • Smith, Nicola Dawn (2012): Design Charrette: A Vehicle for Consultation or Collaboration: The design charrette encompasses tools used in the early phases of the design process, whereby main stakeholders are encouraged to work together with the designer. This ensures that the design process is quicker and more interactive.
  • Hester, Randolph: Democratic Drawing - Techniques for Participatory Design: Painting, collage, sketching, collage and other creative methods are used express ideas and thoughts. Drawing is an attempt add value to the space in the eyes of the people. This makes collaboration very important.

Author 2: Patrizia Eben (URBACT)

  • involving inhabitants & relevant key stakeholders in the development of local policies
  • sharing knowledge with other European cities working on the same problems (transnational exchange)
  • developing sustainable solutions that integrate economic, social and environmental urban topics

Author 3: Ahmed Abdelhafaz

  • Legitimacy: The participatory process for community development and the social considerations by Democratic Process- Community Considerations - Environmental Justice and Learning Opportunities, Reference: Evaluating Community Design, Landscape Journal, Hester, Randolph (2012)
  • The scored awareness: a common language among participants that learn their feelings, not intellectualize them by resources (R), valuation (V), and performance (P) process, Reference: Evaluating Community Design, Landscape Journal, Hester, Randolph (2012)
  • Consensus: Extensive ‘listening’ and ‘collective goals setting to lead to creative consensus, Reference: Evaluating Community Design, Landscape Journal, Hester, Randolph (2012)

Author 4: Mehrnoosh Rahimian

  • Finding the Right Question: Participatory design process is not really a way for finding solutions about problems. It is a manner to identify what is the right challenge and question. To design a space well, the main step is identifying needs of people through asking it from themselves and it means participatory design process (Pritzker Prize winning architect Alejandro Aravena on sustainable design and community involvement in Chile).
  • Landscape as a setting of the life whether in the real world or even in fiction films; The landscape plays an active role not only in our lives but also in the filmic narratives. In the other words, the stories of the narrative heroes take place in the cinematic landscapes as same as our lives that depends on the landscapes (Cinematic Landscapes by Welk Von Mossner, Alexa,2014).
  • To achieve democratic control on urbanization; It calls "The Right to the City". the right to the city is far more than a right of individual access to the resources that the city embodies: it is a right to change ourselves by changing the city more after our heart's desire (The Right to the City: David, Harvey,2003).

Step 5: Reflection

Landscape Democracy is a form of planning, designing & developing sustainable solutions in which all citizens are meant to participate equally, either directly or presenting ideas to the people in a clear way. They are building a consensus or a compromise through discussions or elected representatives in the proposal and develop and establish rules by which their landscapes and open spaces are shaped.
