Building Living Neighborhoods

THE WORKBOOK
and HOW TO USE IT
 
WHAT GOES IN YOUR WORKBOOK

There are three kinds of things to put in your workbook:

  • Unfoldings. A printed copy of each unfolding you want to use. This can be printed directly from the appropriate page on this website.
  • Worksheets. A printed copy of the worksheets that go with each unfolding, and on which you make your own comments, drawings and modifications. These are available section by section, and may be printed that way from the workbook-section pages.
  • Drawings. A printed copy of each drawing you have made, as the unfoldings proceed. If you make these drawings on the DRAWING PAD (see menu to the left), then these should also be printed and kept in the workbook.

  • USING THE WORKBOOK

    This workbook can serve to help you think about and implement the Unfoldings described on this website in a step by step manner for your project. It will also help you organize the information you generate with others. You will have a record that supports your discussion with architects, city planners, neighbors who are joining the project, or whoever you might want to explain your project to. Careful documentation can be very useful when talking with city planners, architects, engineers and other professionals - an added benefit to taking detailed notes.

    The worksheets in this workbook correspond with each "Unfolding" page on the website. The Unfolding pages provide direction on what to do. The worksheets provide space in which you record your observations, thoughts, pictures, decisions, conclusions or processes for each Unfolding. The workbook is a living record of your project and helps you recall details, should you want to convey them to others, or backtrack to see how you got to where you are.

    When you work through the sections that come later in the process of building your neighborhood, the documentation from the earlier sections will be available for review. This will help you recall earlier choices and decisions in light of current questions, and consider whether they should be adjusted to serve the whole project as it moves forward.

    The LivingNeighborhoods.org website guides your understanding of how to grow a neighborhood. The workbook, which you can print and keep in a binder, allows you to document each step you take.
