Sample text

Although this level of dens ity is not without its concerns, it has tan gible advantages : urba n spaces are created, many facilities are available close to one ano the r and are only a short distance away, and land prices are affordable for people with average earnings. Laissez-faire: build ing cooperatives and land parcelling The new urban blocks were sub divided much like a large cake: rather tha n predefining the size of th e plots, th e blocks were divided according to the appetite of the clients - sometimes they are 4 metres wide, sometimes half a street long.

The occupant's perception of a space is always influenced by the journey into that space or viceversa. If the journey was difficult, the space may be perceived as unwelcoming or alternatively as a place of sanctuary. The mood of a space will similarly influenc e the occupant's perception of the journey ahead. In extreme cases , the space may not be accessible at certain times or for certain people because of congestion or physical barriers. Yet,on a typical urban development project , the mobility providers - in a building, the company providing the elevators - are usually selected only once the design is complete, since they are not considered critical in discussions about space .

Currently development practices often proceed in a piecemeal fashion, in accordance with local plans that are frequently outdated within months of being published. Such schemes serve their own ends and often close down other more exciting or beneficial possibilitie s. Contrary to popular belief, engaging in community involvement is not like opening Pandora's box. By creating a consensus view amongst stakeholders, development can proceed through the planning system unhindered by opposition, and achieve results that traditional methods may take many months or even years to produce.
