willbe the new tool to discover the city.
In our everyday lives we came face to face with many problems and experiencesregarding the public space. Public space, as a major and surrounding part of ourlives, might be open to contribution and change. In order to empower designers andcitizen designers' to imagine, explore, discuss and share city-design futures to realizelivable, lovable and walkable cities, HEY! Imaginable Guidelines was launched as anopen call for contributions, which culminated in Imaginable Guidelines ‘Deck-of- Cards'.
HEY! Imaginable Guidelines is a card game which allows users to discover how citiesare designed and offers a base of knowledge that brings neighbors together to makereal-life decisions and a design toolkit to explore the limits and opportunities your cityoffers. It helps to imagine and explore the decisions that are being made on behalf ofcitizens and empower them by supplying urban design vocabulary and know-how. It also has a transdisciplinary methodology to city-making aiming to realize a self-organized city-design process that nurtures vibrant public life and celebrates
neighborhood coherence. Framed under six categories, 101 topics revealfundamental domains of the public realm. In this regard, the design guidelines are a
crucial reference in which the expert assistance, best practice standards, andperformance parameters are prioritized, negotiated and rehearsed to give agency tothe imagination of urban design initiatives.
The content of the cards was crowdsourced from Istanbul's active city design experts,professionals, and sociologists and juxtaposed with artists, designers and poetsinvestigating the city's living culture. The gameplay approach of a ‘deck-of-cards'offers each participant a dynamic pathway into the complexity of city making. Onceparticipating – by reading, reflecting and debating – the ‘players' re-organize thecards into a customized design guideline per their city design priorities andaspirations.
The ‘deck-of-cards' object and ‘playing' concept tap into social-learning forworkshops, meet-ups and even at dinner parties. Workshop facilitators of NGO's,municipal policy-makers and design professionals can create an ‘imaginative' role-playing simulation where parallel exploratory and strategy thinking can flourish withthe outcome of a ‘winning solution' (the customized guideline) based on stakeholderconsensus, debate, and priorities.
HEY! Imaginable Guidelines
provides a sharing platform that empowers designers,citizens, and municipal actors to think holistically with artworks and design ideas of over 150 contributors. Ultimately, fluid conversations, debates on priorities, stakeholder accountability and open-ended proposals for complex physical, social and economic issues are all parts of this game.
