Take Part by Lawrence Halprin & Associates

Vintage @ Placewares

PPI 100

After witnessing public attempts at thwarting redevelopment projects dictated by government and big business, Lawrence Halprin & Associates formulated the Take Part Process in 1970 to stimulate citizen participation in environmental design.

Though Halprin sought federal support to institutionalize “Taking Part,” its development emerged from 1960s anti-establishment culture and was significantly impacted by the work of his wife, Anna Halprin, in avant-garde dance and choreography.

This particular text, TAKE PART, published in limited quantities in 1972, is described as "a report on new ways in which people can participate in planning their own environments." 

This book is an original first-edition publication by Lawrence Halprin & Associates, San Francisco/New York, 1972.
