This lecture focused on collaborative approaches as strategies for creating a place and finding the best solution to a spatial problem. Following the presentation of previous works, the idea of a workshop was introduced for the realization of an architectural intervention in dialogue with the Unbuilt group operating in Dheisheh.
Dan discussed the topic of process planning/participatory planning as a means to develop the unbuilt site into a multi-step project along with possible points of departure for the action. The three-step process begins with an analysis of needs, followed by the formulation of a hypothesis and finalized by the actual use. http://www.spatialagency.net
