Architecture and Society Series. A monthly series with architects & practitioners highlighting the relevance of architecture vis-a-vis current professional and social concerns. Interface Of Citizen Engagement Practices And Urban Planning by Nidhi Batra, urban development practitioner & independent consultant and partner, Junescape.
NOTE: The talk would revolve around the practice of bridging and finding a connect, between various ‘silos’ of urban development especially community engagement practices and formal institution of planning. The discussion would be an enquiry into possible methodology for an urban practitioner to integrate diverse stakeholders in the urban development context, based on her association on various projects with an NGO called Participatory Research in Asia and The World Bank over the last few years.
