Abstract

During the past decades, with the growing complexity of our cities, changing urban situations, dramatic shifts in development conditions and distorting transformations in society, it has become clear that the traditions of all-encompassing master planning and static land-use planning are incapable of steering sustainable development. Nevertheless, in many contexts worldwide, planning systems in place remain in line with these approaches — some stubbornly confident in their value and others merely out of tradition. In most cases though, confusion and doubt prevail on the urban planning scene. Yet traditional land-use planning prevails more by lack of alternatives than by conviction or inertia of legislation. At the same time, however, there are brave attempts to adapt new urban planning methods and tools to address the contemporary urban condition. Across the globe, experiments have followed different directions. The LA21 process in Essaouira, Nakuru and Vinh distinguished itself through its co-productive interplay of vision formulation and strategic urban projects.
