Design dialogues as a specific mode of communication

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademic


Decision-making with respect to urban design is a particular arena where

designerly modes of interaction are used, but placed in the specific context of

coordination across a variation of actors. The planning literature that describes how

urban design is included in decision-making is poorly connected to design literature.

This paper laments this disconnection and shows where design theories reflect

planning theories, and where they can further complement in order to create a richer

understanding of urban planning.
