Designing a Platform for Participatory Urbanism: Transforming Dialogue into Action in Underserved Communities

Abstract : Participatory urbanism platforms must balance stakeholder needs to both empower citizens and exact change from the local authority. While many platforms can trigger discussion, changes will only be achieved through successful collaborative efforts. This paper outlines the challenges and opportunities of designing for participatory urbanism, drawing on a case study completed with UNICEF and underserved communities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Our design approach helped to generate physical changes in the community infrastructure, and the beginnings of behavioral changes for community residents.
