Operational Alternatives // Kelly Doran

After some constructive criticism of our latest work Kelly encouraged us to establish a general thesis for our projects before starting the production, test the different positions that are relevant in our project-area and visualise a selection of the most important positions, in addition to understanding the place within the region, as well as ultimately referring to each other.

We also touched upon an interesting discussion on industrialized landscapes and our role as planners; Kelly arguments that we should cooperate with the industry/companies and make the most of their (economic) resources to plan a "positive" post-industrialized landscape, which leaves something to offer the local community. The industrial tradition far too common is leaving behind abandoned "negative" sites that are dependent on public funding for a positive change to happen.
