Collaborative Development

Urban development projects are increasingly becoming a collaborative undertaking. The aimed for future result of this coalition needs to satisfy all partners involved. That is what makes urban developments complex. Circumstances change because of unexpected events or when the stakeholders involved change their views. This complexity and stakeholder involvement demands today’s city makers to be creative, to connect, to negotiate and to have a strategic focus.

The current challenge in urban development is revitalizing what’s been built (adaptive re-use). Increasingly new uses are sought for old buildings. This new challenge demands players to think past short term delivery on investment to how maintenance and operations should look like. How to organize and guarantee continuity. In this process it is necessary to include the end-user


This Masterclass focusses on recognizing and using the value of stakeholders and end-users. You will be energized by our inspirational examples and we will be working on your project. By the end of the day you will know how to:

– Map, connect and include stakeholders.

– Organise collaborations. Even when you do not have a clear future result negotiated with the partners involved.

– Use co-creation in your urban revitalization and to work towards a sound businesscase, in which the end-user holds the key.


In this Masterclass you will share experiences with others and help each other when working on the assignments. Theory and practice mix in harmony during the day.

We are sharing our tools to advance your projects. Using our GoCreateWith.Us Project Coalition Suite helps you interactively map your stakeholders, build your project coalition and kick off your collaboration.

Give your project an immediate boost? At the end of the day we will post your project and project request on our website.
