Design strategies to respond to the challenges of shrinking city AU - Kim, Saehoon

Abstract:
ABSTRACTUrban design decisions for shrinking cities need to take into account the quality of daily life of the community alongside with the built environment characteristics. However, little is known about why certain urban design strategies should be adopted in response to shrinkage. This paper examines approaches to influencing shrinkage through design, such as building a visible safety net for vulnerable populations, creating place-based social networks and reconfiguring the city?s stigmatized image. Based on the effects of each, four strategies are suggested for design practitioners and policy makers to choose and adopt during the plan-making processes.
