Project Description

Participation

Urbis specializes in reconstructions in existing cities and villages. In these projects inhabitants, businesses and other users of the area are an important factor. The plans are sometimes quite drastic in the existing structure. That’s why input, exchange of information and understanding are crucial for the success of a project. In many projects we gained experience during participation processes. Sometimes by consultation of representatives, information markets, presentations, workshops, polls, a website or even excursions with inhabitants. These are all options to involve inhabitants in a changing process. Even before the formal participation, there will be more understanding for the plans and it is also possible to integrate ideas and suggestions from the public in the plans, from an early stage on.

In these photos you see a selection of projects that had a high level of participation: Scheveningen-Harbour, Luxemburg Kennedy-SudUtrecht Queeckhovenpleinbuurt en Zaandam Slachthuisbuurt.
