This research project examines the roles of project stakeholders involved in land-use projects and produces tools and methods for collaborative practices. We put emphasis on the cooperative skills and the broad knowledge of the participants in a working group. The role of the architect is considered in relation to design, planning and project management with particular emphasis on collaboration and negotiation skills. Specific topics include: The make-up of a good project team, ways to make the project team function together smoothly, objectives and benefits of project-oriented planning, the need to take local characteristics into account, the preparation required for a cooperative planning process, how initial information can be collected and used, how to define project content, and how to outline the project itself, as well as partner-specific strategies.
