Show all documents On agonism and design: dialogues between theory and practice The imagination and elaboration of potential or preferred futures is key to agonism and design ; as such the research trajectories and interventions presented in this thesis have much in common with speculative approaches to design , both in terms of designing to stimulate imaginations of potential futures, and as a means to examine and evaluate a current state of affairs Auger, Indeed speculative concepts may offer a bridge between Constructive Design Research and the application of Critical Theory to design , as these traverse the same territories of HCI and Interaction Design yet at times follow divergent paths J.
Urban Design theory and practice
Sun, Feb 28, [ Archive ]. Remember me Create Account Reset Password. Rafieian M, Ghazaie M. The advent of modern planning in the early twentieth century and its failure in practice caused the emergence of planning crisis which theory-practice gap has been its central theme of debate. This gap begot various readings of urban planning theory to make theory and practice much closer. Radical planning, as one of these readings, deprives the power of central government in favour of empowering the citizens and considers the highest level of participation in decision-making processes for them.

Urban design focuses on the development of unified goal-oriented development projects. They vary in scale from new towns to neighbourhoods to blocks of cities. Much of the significant work is now executed by a limited number of multi-national professional organisations on behalf of development companies that invest internationally and municipal authorities seeking an important place on the world stage. The schemes, wherever they are located, have a degree of homogeneity about them and pay little heed to local climatic conditions, ways of life and aesthetic values. They are international.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This forward-looking resource recasts the concept of healthy cities as not only a safe, pleasant, and green built environment, but also one that creates and sustains health by addressing social, economic, and political conditions.
Research has shown, through concrete examples, that the practice of integrated planning is more prevalent in cities in EU countries than in post-.
At the root of any theory of social practice like planning is an epistemology, a concept of what knowledge is, how it is attained, and who may claim to have it. In planning, where the press of work and current issues in the profession leave little time for philosophical examinations, basic epistemological theory gets understandably short shrift. Nonetheless, it is wise on occasion to step back and examine the theories and ideas underlying our practice, for they are important, whether examined or not. This paper is one contribution to that project.
