Journeys in People-Centred Design

Edited by: Cité du Design, CLEAR VILLAGE, Josyane Franc, Olivier Peyricot, Camille Vilain, Thomas Ermacora, Frank van Hasselt and Robin Houterman

Urban Participation – best practices

Since 2014, the Human Cities network has been working on Challenging the City Scale: a pan-European project led by Cité du design Saint-Étienne and supported by the Creative Europe programme to question the urban scale and investigate co-creation in cities. The Human Cities partners have carried out urban experimentations in 11 European cities empowering citizens to rethink the spaces in which they live, work and spend their leisure time.

Through conversations with people involved, the book examines how bottom-up processes and their design, tools and instruments generate new ideas to reinvent the city. It offers inspiration and insights to everyone, from practitioners and politicians to designers and active citizens, eager to try out new ways to produce more human cities together.

  • Inspiration to politicians, planners and residents who want to make their city more liveable
  • Bottom-up projects from eleven European cities
  • Multidisciplinary approach by Universities, Design Centres, NGOs
