The Urban Reasoning project was developed through a collaboration between We Made That and Carver Haggard.
The project was part of the Creative City Limits network, supported by the Commission for the Built Environment (CABE), the Arts and Humanities Research Council and UCL Urban Laboratory.
The project aimed to open up new questions about the parameters of regeneration policy, and the links between ethics, research, and practice.
Exploration began with a short online survey of ‘urban reasoning’ and logical links based on traditional verbal reasoning, aptitude and logic tests. Over 150 responses to the survey were received from participants in the Creative City Limits research network, on which a short study of personality profiles was based. This study was used as a research tool to build a picture of the thinking at large within the research network which has brought together academics, artists, planners, architects, policy-makers and other key stakeholders.
