Abstract

In this exploratory paper, we draw from a series of participatory design experiments to reflect on the impact of life-centred design approaches on long-term thinking. We conceptualise long-term thinking according to three components: 1) Thinking through diverse perspectives, 2) enhancing futures imagination, and 3) challenging anticipatory assumptions. Long-term thinking is increasingly recognised as invaluable in urban regeneration projects, however, to date, knowledge on how to nurture long-term thinking remains sparse.
