The transformation of the city is usually driven by powerful economic interests
and ruled by governance models where the citizens often only have a reduced
intervention in the process. In many cases, there is also a significant gap between architects and urbanists and the inhabitants
of the city motivated by the excessively technical language presented which
creates a barrier between both sides turning participation into a mainly
bureaucratic. How to deal with
and overcome this communication gap is the main objective of the course.
