Article
Current environmental and health challenges require us to identify ways to better align aesthetics, ecology, and health. At the local level, community gardens are increasingly praised for their therapeutic qualities. They also provide a lens through which we can explore relational processes that connect people, ecology and health. Using key-informa...
Article
Urban place-making requires an understanding of experiences and meanings ordinary people associate with common environments—meanings that often go back to their childhoods. This paper investigates how children's place preferences and the attributes of these places differ along a rural-urban continuum. Participatory photography was used with four gr...
Article
This paper discusses the role of music in establishing and expressing place attachment based on a study of Istanbul songs in Turkish classical music, from 1700 to the present. Istanbul songs are about fortunate people who participate in a way of life made possible by the beauty of the city. The study identifies four themes: excursion, romance, pers...
Article
This paper argues that postmodern planning favours increasing informalization of traditional controls over land use and building whereby planning and design strategies are reconstructed and reinterpreted by means of a high level of communication among the stakeholders. In such an environment, significant issues are the integration of planning and d...
Article
The central question of this study is whether and how the broader paradigmatic changes in social discourse, as exemplified by the postmodernism debate, are reflected in the practical world of local land-use regulations, specifically the design-review processes. We identify the paradigmatic themes of postmodernism as 'place', 'sustainability', and '...
Article
This article examines the attitudes of studio instructors in architecture and landscape architecture departments throughout the United States toward the designer's role, sources of knowledge and inspiration in design, related disciplines, and essential skills. A cluster analysis of instructors' responses to a questionnaire identified five groups ac...
Article
This study addresses the difficulties in design education regarding scientific knowledge generation and its application in the design studio by investigating the effects of particular design approaches on the integration of sociobehavioural scientific information by design students. The investigation involved the systematic assignment of the studen...
Article
Social discourse regarding design issues evolves in the contexts of the scholarly arena, the city hall, the courts, the public media, and the use/action realm or everyday life. Design review, narrowly conceived, is one of the formal mechanisms within the broader context of this social discourse. In this conception, the impact of design review on th...
Article
This paper describes the process and results of a community development project that provided an opportunity to implement and evaluate an integrative approach to planning and design. The approach is aimed at addressing some of the most vexing procedural and substantive issues in planning and design, including the integration of planning with design...
Chapter
System Dynamics modeling has been applied to regional, urban, and community problem solving where critical policies are concerned with land-use controls. Representation of change in the spatial distribution and physical appearances of various activities have traditionally been achieved by modeling these as transfers between relatively homogeneous s...
Article
When planning models and emergent paradigms in the area of landscape perception are reviewed, it can be observed that the aesthetics issue is neglected in the mainstream planning approaches. In turn, visual assessment research does not provide any information of value to planners in incorporating the issue into policy models. This dilemma is attrib...
Article
The procedure outlined in this paper was applied to obtain user preferences for a set of housing attributes where the current actual cost of each attribute and an overall budget constraint were specified. This information was then used to design prototype homes. Data were gathered with a trade-off questionnaire and analyzed by factor analysis. Resu...
