Author 2: IvanO

  • Urban fabric is composed not just of physical characteristics but by mental images,
  • Cityscapes
  • People orient themselves by the mental images,
  • Cities should be designed giving room for people to:
 - Acquire mental map of the built environment,
 - learn how to navigate,
 - operate and act upon their environment.

Author 3:Jonas Löhle (URBACT)

  • open decision-making and planning culture - citizens and civil society are strongly involved
  • transnational exchange between european cities - work together to develop effective and sustainable responses to major urban challenges and societal changes
  • implementation of lasting policies - improve the capacity of cities to manage sustainable urban policies and practices in an integrated and participative way

'Author 4: Elnaz Imani'

  • (Day, Christopher (2002): Consensus Design, Architectural Press)

Versus democracy, which means the right of the majority to impose its will on the minority, consensus design is about everybody getting what, after working together and listening to the whole situation, they have come to want. This could work at a pre-emotive level, when we agree about the "soul quality" and essence of situation.

  • (Welk Von Mossner, Alexa (2014): Cinematic Landscapes, In: Topos, No. 88, 2014)

Landscape always plays an important and active role in the lifelong narrative, even in fiction film.

  • (Goldstein, B. E., A. T. Wessells, R. Lejano, and W. Butler. 2015. Narrating Resilience: Transforming Urban Systems Through Collaborative Storytelling. Urban Studies. 52 (7): 1285-1303)

Urban resilience signals a capacity to self-organise at various scales and to adjust behaviour in order to adapt to and transform emergent conditions—including the scale of appropriate action. We can do this across various ways of knowing and existing patterns of action, making them particularly powerful and accessible and telling the communities stories in order to identify system properties that are meaningful and compelling and enhance their personal and collective agency.
