This new city making process is not only about bringing various disciplines together that address urban developments, but foremost seeks to establish a collaborative effort of defining a new way of working between professional designers, academics, policy makers and citizens. Incumbent actors typically follow more routine based thinking and behaviour, while addressing complex societal challenges requires more radical (social) innovation. The Participatory City Making project considers the collaborative construction of new visions through small-scale experiments as a way of triggering a process of broader change and transformation. Hereto, a new toolset is provided enabling heterogeneous stakeholders to participate actively as well as to explore the collaborative envisioned potential and articulate their own role in the new city making process.
The project is a collaboration of TU Delft (lead partner), Eramus University Rotterdam and Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences (Research Centre Creating 010)
