A grand design for earning public approval
As local governments seek public input on projects, they might struggle to manage comments and collect feedback to guide decisions. “Designing Public Consensus” is a new book written to help architects, planners, landscape architects and urban designers work with governments, residents and community groups on public projects. Drawing on case studies of projects, such as Boston’s Wharf District Park and New York’s World Trade Center site, author Barbara Faga illustrates how to work with a variety of stakeholders and handle sensitive issues.
