With a wealth of detailed analysis and clear, well-designed graphics, this volume offers practical tools for a truly collaborative architecture that is based on analysis, management, data collection and design. Avilla-Royo demonstrates how the architectural project becomes an instrument for citizen involvement in decision-making and how citizen involvement offers an exciting opportunity to improve the design and everyday uses of architecture. As community becomes a more dominant paradigm in how architecture is produced, more people become involved in its creation. This implies a change in the role of the architect from being an individual author to a facilitator, from being an independent expert to establishing and managing collaboration.Raül Avilla-Royo (born 1987) is a Spanish architect and lecturer at the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB) and the Architectural Association (AA) in London.
