SungHee AHN and Stephen L. SMITH


For the purpose of promoting innovation in the public design domain, this

paper proposes abandoning the conventional design process in favour of a

process based on participation by residents of, and visitors to the region or

city concerned. Concurrently, the paper analyses how participation-based

public design affects the sustainability of long-term local regeneration. The

analysis can give academics and practitioners working in diverse design

professions a valuable insight into how innovations can be facilitated rather

than fashioned directly by the practitioner’s own imagination and hands.

The key is collaboration between designer (as a ‘design manager’) and the

participants. This paper proposes a ‘participation-based local regeneration

design model’ (the Model) which can induce intense interactions in the public

design process. The Jeju local regeneration project is reported as a practical

demonstration of this model. This paper can be classified as a review of an

experimental project. The paper accepts a particular definition of

‘sustainability: continuing autonomous transformation of the community

through the participation process can be regarded as evidence of the

sustainability of the local regeneration design model. Further evidence of its

sustainability may be found in an increase in links and relationship among

community members and between the community and the outer world.
