Planning with Things

Planning with Things

(p.57) Three Planning with Things
Planning Matter

Robert A. Beauregard

University of Chicago Press

This chapter claims a place for non-human things in the worlds of planning practice and theory. Using a fragment of a dialogue between a group of planners and a developer, it explores how things–apartment buildings, site plans, parking spaces–shape planning practice. The emphasis is on the importance of things to practical deliberations, commitments, and mutual understandings.

Keywords:   practice, non-human things, deliberations, settings
