Experimentation with Uncertainty and the Unpredictable

(p.143) 6 Experimentation with Uncertainty and the Unpredictable
The Urban Improvise

Kristian Kloeckl

Yale University Press

This chapter illustrates this improvisation-based design model through an analysis of a number of recent interactive urban projects that vary in scope and scale. The improvisation-based model offers a different view of these projects that allows for a new understanding of their nature. The projects display some of the characteristics of improvisational dynamics discussed so far. They represent instances along a trajectory toward an improvisational perspective on the design of urban interactions. Not all of these examples display all elements of the model equally, but all of the examples display some of these elements to some extent. Examining these projects by way of the four positions of the improvisation-based design model helps illustrate how parts of the model can be used in a design process.
