Democratic Design

Democratic Design

Working through perspectives of both designers and “non-designers,” in this domain we explore the social and political locations of the designed urban environment, as well as collaborative and participatory design processes and ways of working that make both the process of planning and outcomes democratic. Likewise, these contributions acknowledge the different ways in which design always happens in a social, cultural and political context.
