Abstract

This research develops a participatory methodology to gain understanding of the existing and aspirational place experiences of primary school children. It aims to empower children by giving them a voice ordinarily hidden from design and planning processes. Exploration and testing of methodologies has been ongoing since 1999 in a number of practice based case studies involving primary school children. As a result of refinement through a review of practice and literature a provisional framework of methodological tools was constructed for testing and developing in the participatory phases of the research. This involved the contribution of 68 participant children.
