Back issue for magazine - Hunch # 13

Hunch # 13 The planning of the built environment involves different entities working together to make design decisions. On the one hand, this often complex and inconsistent process results in there being a lack of a unifying design vision: original intentions, motivations and criteria may be lost in the spirit of collective representation. On the other hand, this process has the potential to introduce new possibilities for buildings and cities that may never have been imagined before. From the Dutch ‘polder model’ of decision-making and examples of ‘design by committee’ to participatory forms of urbanism and top-down planning methods, the authors explore how to broker agreement between parties in order to garner broader public support. The topics addressed include the promotion of participatory and communication-based models of urban planning and design, the effects of digital processes on the construction industry, the collaborative interaction of the architecture studio, the political implications of commissioning star architects and the actualization of universal planning strategies.
These topical contributions are accompanied by marginalia of annotations, terminologies and short stories. This issue also includes a series of interviews with renowned architectural practitioners and theorists. With contributions by Pi de Bruijn, Teddy Cruz, Gramazio + Kohler, Thomas A.P. van Leeuwen, Matthew Moore, Aryan Sikkema, et al.
