Traditionally, decisions about design and planning have incorporated limited public input. This top-down process has been questioned at various times in the twentieth century through alternative participatory strategies. But the promise of participation has not been realized at a large scale. Now, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, in a world of rapid urbanization, expanding informal settlements, and increasing debates about the social relevance of the design and planning professions, it seems timely to take a new look at the possible role of participation in planning and design. This exhibition presents a number of contemporary participation case studies, situating these examples in the context of influential books on this subject and materials from the Loeb Library’s Special Collections.
