Projective Planning - An Inquiry into the Justifications for Urban Planning
Abstract: Projective Planning explores recent trends in urban planning, asking how planning practices associated with these trends are justified and organized. The constantly changing conditions of capitalist societies require a form of urban planning that is alert and responsive to the circumstances in which it operates. This places demands on the organization of urban planning, on urban planners, and on the way justifications for urban planning are constructed. The book offers insights into a new form of urban planning characterized by networked relations, project activities, flexibility, cooperation, entrepreneurialism, risk-taking and control.
