MAKING PLANNING POPULAR
Planning is the process through which society produces change in our built
environment. It is a social product,and as such should be shared by the
whole of society.
The rhetoric of localism, and public reaction to it, have created an unusual
opportunity for the redistribution of planning knowledge, and for the recovery
of models outside the current system.
Seizing this opportunity, planning must be made popular: something that
people understand, like, and do.
But to be understood, it must first be seen. We must make visible the shape
and effect of both the current system and alternatives borrowed from other
times and places.
