“Building Collectively” ("Construir en col·lectiu") is a book with print and digital editions that gathers together participatory methodologies for the construction of the city and its buildings.
In the last few years we have lived through a rebirth of participation, which searches for new formulas for empowering citizens and reaching groups of people who have traditionally been excluded: women; youth; immigrants…Despite the growth of interesting participatory processes, there is a lack of reference texts on citizens’ participation in urban domains, especially when it comes to architecture and urban planning. At best, we encounter scattered articles in publications from the social movement sphere, or businesses’, organizations’, and administrations’ partial dissemination of their own projects.
Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.
The book is divided into three sections:
Theoretical framework. In this section we have cooperated with other collectives in the Spanish state, who have drafted articles on a variety of themes to illustrate the different spheres of participation.
Manual. This is the main part of the book, where we will systematically define various methodologies, techniques, and tools.
Case studies. These were selected from a number of projects that have been carried out, in order to reflect diverse experiences of participation.
Examples from the sections on Theory and Experiences:
Why this is important
This project stems from the lack of accessible documentation about participation in architecture and urban planning. The publication is directed toward technicians from different disciplines (architecture, urban planning, sociology, political science, etc.), politicians, and people who are involved with participation. It is also directed at residents’ groups that are interested in organizing participatory processes.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaign
We believe that this project is necessary to distinguish the quality of participatory processes, disseminate best practices, and cultivate a culture of participation in our society.
Once this campaign has been completed, we’ll contact you to deliver the rewards. They will be available for pickup at LaCol’s offices in Sants, Barcelona. We will also ship rewards upon payment of:
5€ -Shipping to peninsular Spain with eco-couriers from the cooperative Trèvol
10€ - International shipping
LaCol is an architects’ cooperative in the neighborhood of Sants (Barcelona). We work on architecture for social transformation. Since 2009, we have collaborated on reflecting on and disseminating the role of citizens in the construction of the city through articles, talks, papers, and documentaries…and now we want to do it with this print and digital publication.
