Faire et (re)faire - Coloco et Gilles Clement

Here is a lecture - in french I am afraid - as a conversation between the collective Coloco that specialises in bringing communities together to change their urban spaces and the landscape designer Gilles Clement who developed the concept of the garden in movement.

Translated as doing and (re)doing, the lecture's main theme is an alternative approach to design which they share. Instead of the designer as a single artist working from the office, design is here an activity on the ground and in collaboration between the designer and the collectivity. Decisions are made on site and the final plan is a record of what happens - as opposed to an exact description of what is to be done.
