dc.description.abstract The shift toward participatory, advocacy and social architecture and planning that occurred in the 1960's and 70's in North America was illustrated with the work of the Community Design Centers. These Community Design Centers provided architectural, planning and technical services to low income groups with an emphasis on user participation. The Community Desgin Center provided a model by which the professional, the student and the community could work together as a team on current issues within the community. This study examines the basic notions of the Community Design Centers in order to determine the principles at work in the model. The Urban Design Center of Vancouver, 1970-76 is used as a specific case study. en
