Isolation from the world creates immense impact on our brain Disassociation with the world gives us the feeling of freedom. But, the impact for very short period. Whether, it has a tremendous long term impact on us. Separation from nature, environment and community gives us a negative effect on everything.

  • (C: A Refrain with a View, UC Berkeley, Hester, Randolph (1999))

Participatory action equalizes power Participatory approach, mainly reduces the dependency on administrative people. It segregates all the workload and liabilities on stakeholder, so that, they can propose what exactly their demands are. It creates the balance. Author 2: Mastaneh Mahfouzi

  • ( A: Landscape and Democracy - Mapping the Terrain: Burckhardt, Lucius (1979): Why is landscape beautiful? in Fezer/Schmitz (Eds.) Rethinking Man-made Environments (2012))

Different perception of landscape landscape is a subjective reality, a certain landscape Scene can convey different meanings and feelings to different people due to their personality, culture,pre-expectation and etc. So different observers have different ideas about a certain place, in consequence, everyone has not the same charming place in mind.

  • (B: Concepts of Participation: Day, Christopher (2002): Consensus Design, Architectural Press )

simultaneously cooperation of designers and owners Emotion demands are the invisible level of life, But also one of the most important and fundamental features in designing. in order to consider this feature of life, it's crucial that professionals and designers work simultaneously with users in order to reach subtle qualities and also provide all needs and demands of owners.

  • (C:Designing: Hester, Randolph: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sustainable Happiness)

Satisfaction through sustainability: Sustainability can bring satisfaction for residents of a city in different aspects. A sustainable city should include three distinctive traits: enabling form, resilient form and impelling form. enabling form:We need new forms of habitation that let us feel, understand and empathize with the multiple roles in our ecosystems

Resilient form: In order to consider resiliently in a city at the scale of land use, They should be less dependent on nonrenewable energy sources.

Impelling Form: Impelling form should offer alternatives, be simple enough to comprehend

  • (Woodend, Lorayne (2013): A Study into the Practice of Machizukuri)

The importance of an understanding of the historic, cultural and recognizing and capitalizing upon the benefits and contributions of the multiple activities of communities towards the common aims of sustainability.

  • (Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2013): Places in the Making: How Place-making Builds Places and Communities)

The best forms of community engagement, and in fact the best forms of place-making, are those that recognize and exploit the virtuous cycle of mutual stewardship between community and place.

  • (Nassauer, Joan Iverson (1995): Culture and Changing Landscape Structure, Landscape Ecology, vol. 10 no. 4)

humans not only construct and manage landscapes, they also look at them, and they make decisions based upon what they see (and know, and feel). This dynamic helps to explain landscape structure as both an effect of culture and as an artifact that changes culture.

Author 5: Oleksandr Galychyn

  • Imaginable landscapes are the path dependent single or multiple symbolic orderings (common assemblage networks) within specific community that pass to the the next generation as generalized knowledge through human or (non-human) mediator to foster a sense of community among the individuals.
  • The debates the regarding the Right to the City open of question for the establishment of the new urban actor-civic society as a mediator in the participatory governance model to open a road towards an 'inclusive city'. An application of such actor to the urban planning process creates an opportunity for the realization of the spatially just society; therefore, the spatially just community is a community that both employs a participatory governance model at the local level and surpasses formal/informal functional restrictions towards the mutual partnership of during the neighborhoods lifecycle
  • The 町造り(Machizukuri) can be perceived as the process of 'space making' that involve the local (urban) participatory network of residents and non-profit organization (research institutes, universities) organized for the entire urban lifecycle in accordance with the principles of innovation, knowledge and learning . The community involvement in the fusion of planning and design placed in the center of aspect the central role since design absent in the USA communities. Japanese perceive the community design process as the management and maintenance of infrastructural networks between buildings and the urban space during the entire lifecycle to preserve their imaginable landscapes as a collective identity for the future generations.
