Vancouver architect Stanley King demonstrates his method of involving the public in urban design. He calls it the "draw-in/design-in." In downtown Vancouver a certain area is slated for redevelopment. How can it be made to best serve the needs of the people who will use it? At a "draw-in" a group of students sketch their ideas; later, at a "design-in," including adults, the sketches are refined in a way that can serve as a guide for city planners.
