Lozano, Community Design and the Culture of Cities, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1990. Still worse is when this soothing gesture becomes downright manipulation – when the act of participation is in fact one of imposition under the false guise of inclusion.

It is to these last two issues, communication and contingency, that we now turn. Urban storytelling Doctrines must take their beginnings from that of the matter which they treat. Evans, The Projective Cast: Architecture and its three geometries, Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1995.
