Which side are you on?

What is your interest in high & low?
From the field of urban studies, I would be interested in discussing and understanding the planning processes in different parts of the world. Eg.China is famous for its top-down urban planning approach. However, Germany seems to emphasize the public participation during the planning procedure. In this context, the Chinese top-down planning method seems to be monopolized but efffective; the German bottom-up planning method, on the other hand, seems to be very democratic but time-consuming.
