Abstract: Face-to-Face participatory discussions often need to be combined with digital support tools in order to get the best results. Modern Information and Communication Technologies allow complex digital models to be rapidly generated and analysed. It can provide immediate feedback to complex problems that may otherwise take longer in conventional consultations. However, physical workshops often present scalability issues and may not be accessible to everyone in the community. A new method is required to allow hundreds of groups to be making proposals for different urban sites all over the city. This research uses the design of urban spaces as a vehicle to explore this new novel methodology for citizen participation in urban design. Citizens can provide a vision for the type of urban space that would serve the community while still meeting the desired gross floor area (GFA) for the development. The thesis presents a vision-based Tangible User Interface that was designed to facilitate a two-phase approach to test the hypothesis. The analogue-digital process will make use of inexpensive paper material and commonly accessible technology like a modern camera-enabled phone. Citizens will use a paper-cutting approach to shape the urban space within an urban block and use the phone as the processing agent. A three-dimensional visualisation of the urban block may then be viewed on the phone or the computer. In the first phase, the thesis investigates the urban spaces created from conventional extruded building forms like podiums and towers. The second phase of the research takes on a subtraction approach to allow for more fine-tuned massing. Preliminary tests with users showed promising results, as participants were able to create diverse types of urban spaces. The web application is available on www.ctysketch.com
