Synopsis: With Case studies of neighborhood developments from North and South America, Europe, and Africa that span more than forty years. this book offers a seminal treatise on the community based design practices of participatory planning an advocacy architecture.   "To transform their good intentions into tangible results in neighborhoods jittery over gentrification, the mayor and his planners should read Building Together: Case Studies in Participatory Planning and Community Building." - Sam Roberts, The New York Times
With case studies of neighborhood developments from North and South America, Europe, and Africa that span forty years, Building Together offers a seminal treatise on the community-based design practices of participatory planning and advocacy architecture. The authors describe the challenges, opportunities, and rewards of grassroots collaboration through vivid personal accounts chosen for their practical lessons. Their case studies range in scale from regional urban planning to smaller architectural projects, and geographically from Harlem, Greenpoint, and the greater New York Metropolitan region to sites in coastal Colombia, southern France, and Burkina Faso, Africa. Building Together is designed to appeal to a diverse audience of community development specialists, faculty and students of planning, architecture, community health, and the social sciences, practicing professionals and decisionmakers in economic development, and community-based organizations.

Book Description New Village Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 240 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.Participatory planning, far from being a fashionable or politically correct form of practice, is probably the only approach that can achieve a communitys goal for security, shelter, stability and human happiness. With case studies of neighborhood developments from North and South America, Europe, and Africa that span more than forty years, Building Together offers essential understanding of participatory, collaborative processes that support civil society and sustain democratic cultures. It includes large-scale urban projects such as Listening the City, which engaged more than five thousand New York citizens in the rebuilding effort after the 911 attacks on the World Trade Center, and smaller appropriate-technology architectural projects such as self-help assisted housing on Tumaco island at the southern tip of Colombia, South America. Although the cases in this book appear to be highly disparate, involving very different communities and contexts, they were all inspired by the same overarching goalto help people, whatever their socioeconomic status, better understand the forces acting upon them and organize themselves to have a true say in the construction of their environments. Roger Katan is a French American architect, artist, and educator, renowned as a proponent of the community-based design practices of participatory architecture and advocacy planning. He has been a university instructor, international consultant, lecturer, activist, and author on the subject. Ron Shiffman is the former director of the Pratt Center for Community Development, which he cofounded in 1964. He is currently a professor at Pratts Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment.
