After decades of relying on traditional planning models, users and stakeholders have become ambivalent with the process and are often less likely to enthusiastically participate.
The PLAYCE approach was developed in 2014 for community engagement in the design process. In 2020, PLAYCE was made an official company to empower collaboration among communities, their agents, and designers to create meaningful built environments for everyone.
The PLAYCE approach to public engagement is a fun and interactive process that helps to form the basis of a design vision that is deeply rooted in community support.
The PLAYCE approach is easily integrated into traditional public engagement models and provides forms of engagement that foster efficient, productive and quality public participation. PLAYCE techniques cultivate a spirit of cooperation and creative problem solving among participants that when combined with a transparent process, builds trust from the onset of a project.
