We Own The City - Enabling Community Practice In Architecture And Urban Planning

urbanism | Valiz

This book portrays the time of the neighbourhood, where urban dwellers, formerly only users of urban development, are taking ownership of their surroundings. Bottom-up initiatives are gaining ground, while governments and developers sometimes find themselves inadequately prepared to support this international trend, which deserves a broader scope of analysis. Through five cases in five cities (Amsterdam, Moscow, New York, Hong Kong, Taipei), different dynamics and intensities of citizen-driven urban redevelopment processes are examined, with the goal of providing new recommendations and methods that respond to community needs and individual aspirations.
