"The use of “participatory design” in the urban renewal process of housing areas" Ioannidou Anna

 

This project examines the use of participatory design in the urban renewal process of housing areas. At first, there is a reference in the conditions that led to the  idea of participation of users in the design process, followed by a rating of the different types and levels of participation and the definition of certain of its principles and objectives. Moreover, there is a detailed analysis of certain examples of urban renewals in housing areas (mostly social housing), with the participation of its inhabitants. Finally, there is a general comment on this method and some conclusions, a general reference on the conditions in Greece and in new forms of participation that have appeared lately.
