The Charrette Handbook is a step-by-step guide to successful charrettes -- those extended exercises that help citizens envision new possibilities for their communities. Based on a program developed by the National Charrette Institute, the book offers a three-phase approach to project management, describing how to organize for a charrette, how to conduct one, and how to put the resulting ideas into effect. The section on preparation has been extensively overhauled for this edition.
