Typology of Tools for urban design governance



Exploration tools engage directly in the design process through mechanisms that investigate, test out and involve the community in particular design approaches. They are hands on but exploratory in nature, either utilising temporary interventions or inputting into larger project or place-shaping processes.

Examples include:

– Proactive engagement tools such as design led community participation;
– Professional investigation tools such as research by design and testing and on-site experimentation.
