We own the city: enabling community practice in architecture and urban planning
City planning, Citizen participation
The city and urban society is the sphere of Trancity. Trancity was founded by Simon Franke between 1982 and 1992. This book examines the ways in which urban dwellers, who used to be merely "clients" of development, are taking ownership of their neighborhood. Also analyzes this international trend through five case studies, focusing on Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Moscow, New York and Taipei, each of which discusses different dynamics and intensities of citizens' redevelopment processes.
