WG 3 – Methodological Framework

Description

The objectives of WG3 include the investigation and development of appropriate analytical and projective methods to understand narratives of European medium-size cities, and to develop new strategies, scenarios and guidelines for future urban and architectural visions.
The operations carried out by WG3 comprehend the investigation on the possibility of cross-disciplinary tools and techniques to be used in the process of research and to explore and test the possibilities of identified methodologies and tools through site-specific workshops in cooperation with Working Group 4.

This Working Group will delineate and test a repertoire of pertinent methods for context analysis and the formulation of propositions. These methods will be obtained from a consensual choice of precedents. The methods will confront the problems defined by the initiative within a limited structure, and with an equally limited set of techniques, procedures and tools. The objectives of WG3 include the investigation and development of appropriate analytical and projective methods to understand narratives of European medium-size cities, and to develop new strategies, scenarios and guidelines for future urban and architectural visions. The operations carried out by WG3 are organized in three distinctive tasks:

  • Task 1: Investigating the possibility of cross-disciplinary tools and techniques to be used in the process of research.
  • Task 2: Preview of key literature about methodologies and concepts relevant to narrative analysis of the European medium-sized cities.
  • Task 3: Exploring and testing the possibilities of identified methods and tools through site specific workshops in cooperation with WG4.

The deliverables of the WG3 are:

  • D1. Progress report (1x)
  • D2. Academic journal; (8x) (together WG1/2/4)
  • D3. Training school; (3x) (together with WG2)
  • D4. Expert meeting; (3x) (together with WG2)
  • D5. Think tank. (3x) (together with WG2)
  • D6. Methodology report; (1x)

WG3 will create a platform in which the other working groups and all the incoming calls and papers can be evaluated and assessed, whit in the framework of the action and the WG3 objectives. This platform needs to become the link between the theoretical WG1 and WG2 and the case study oriented WG4. It needs to make the theoretical part productive, and the productive part evaluable.
