Involvement and Architecture in the US since 1963.
Community Design denominates a socially engaged architecture and planning practice that cultivates a self organized and participatory planning approach since more than 40 years. Its potential for an oppositional architectural practice depends not only on its significant ability to serve better for those people disregarded by the mainstream production of space, but in its reflection and sometimes rejection of capitalist claims to the production of space.
