— ... is a process-oriented control instrument for spaces in transformation —
The UC Dynamic Master Plan is a planning instrument open to the notion of time. Spaces in transformation are usually characterized by the “no-longer” and the “not-yet”. Nothing is fixed. Everything is in flux. Anyone obsessed with fixed visions is easily lost. Anyone who understands planning as activating a process unleashes unexpected possibilities.
The UC Dynamic Master Plan is a strategic instrument which accompanies processes, guides them but does not determine their course in advance. It combines a long-term perspective with an openness and enjoyment of the unexpected and the short-term. Participatory processes allow for individual actors as well as professionals such as building contractors, planning authorities,or external experts to become initiators of change. The long-term vision remains elastic. It is conceived in several successive stages and constantly adjusted.
