Concepts and definitions

Author 1: Sanja Budinski

  • CONCEPT 1 (Sanoff, Henry (2014): Multiple Views of Participatory Design) - Participatory design is a force of change in creation of human's environments creating benefits such as citizen empowerment, increasing social capital and promoting a sense of community.
  • CONCEPT 2 (The New Urban Agenda Quito Declaration on Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements for All, UN resolution from December 2016) - Principles of sustainable and inclusive urban prosperity, equity and opportunity for all will ensure successful transformation of our cities in the process of global urbanization.
  • CONCEPT 3 (The New Urban Agenda Quito Declaration on Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements for All, UN resolution from December 2016) - People centered planning needs to go beyond community engagement to empower all individuals and communities in order to end all forms of discrimination.

Author 2: Sarah Jankowski

  • CONCEPT 1: "Socially inclusive process - Consensus vs. democracy": It is the concept about everybody participating at a planning process or desicion. Everybody comes to the same opinion in the end without an arising minority (Day, Christofer: Consensus Design).
  • CONCEPT 2: "Environmental Justice and City Planning and Design": The concept of landscape literacy invites inhabitants of the Mill Creek getting literate (landscape literacy). That means they have to study their history, experience and culture. After that they start to recognize the problems in their environment (Spirn, Anne: Restoring Mill Creek).
  • CONCEPT 3: "Techniques for Participatory Design": The aim is to create places with people by visualizing, communicating and designing by 5 special methods. These are representing the people, exchanging professional knowledge, coauthoring design, empowering people to represent themselves and visualizing deep values (Hester, Randolph: Democratic Drawing).

  • AESTHETIC: considering the feedback loop between culture and landscape, the landscape can be changed according to aesthetic qualities that guides human behavior
  • EXPERIENCE: it is essential to know what are people habits and what really inhabitants care about, also carefully inspired by the on-site signs
  • NEEDS: change is possible only after researching and understanding what are the basic needs of the people
