Co-design for new forms of urban living
Anna CHIAMBRETTO:"Sharing land is also building community. We involve future homeowners early on in the development of their housing projects. Together with neighbourhood organisations and local citizen initiatives we open up the project to the neighbourhood. By participating in the development of the project, inhabitants become “real” holders of the project".
Sophia DE SOUSA: "Empowering citizens to play an active role in the design of their cities requires: creating opportunities for citizens to engage with the language of design and placemaking and to play an active role in decision-making; building capacity among design and placemaking practitioners to effectively engage with citizens; and a multi-faceted, inclusive and accountable approach to design engagement.”
