Studio ROSA collaborated with Urban Sustainability Rwanda in this exploration. They had as goal to get attention to the importance of urban planning and policy. Specifically about the interaction between participation processes and top down aproach, involving stakeholders, using local sources and expertise and improving the relation between politics, technology and design.
The exploration consisted of a series of workshop in the Netherlands and Rwanda, with an area in Kigali as cast study.
The project will continue, and here you can read the evaluation of the proceedings so far: http://stimuleringsfonds.nl/toekenningen/internationale_verkenningen_2015_towards_participatory_urban_design_and_strategic_planning_in_rwanda/
