Teresa Córdova will discuss Participatory Budgeting (PB) in the city of Chicago and describe the role of the Great Cities Institute (GCI) in facilitating this democratic process of determining public spending. The presentation will include a history of participatory budgeting and describe the process and partnerships for making this process a success. In addition, the lecturer will also discuss the challenges of PB and strategies for overcoming them.

PB is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. It offers people a fundamentally different way to engage with government. The United Nations has promoted PB as a best practice of democratic governance. In February 2012 GCI partnered with The PB Project and a broad coalition of aldermen, city-wide institutions, and community-based organizations to launch PB Chicago. PB Chicago aims to implement and expand PB processes and direct democracy throughout Chicago. GCI is the lead university partner on PB Chicago, responsible for providing overall project management, community engagement, and evaluation. Since 2012, PB Chicago has engaged over 13,000 residents in twelve different communities in directly deciding how to spend over $18 million in public dollars.

Teresa Córdova is the Director of the Great Cities Institute (GCI) at the University of Illinois in Chicago. She is also Professor of Urban Planning and Policy in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs (CUPPA) and an affiliate faculty of UIC’s Departments of Sociology, Gender and Women Studies, and Latino and Latin American Studies. Prof. Córdova received her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley. She has received multiple recognitions for academic achievement and leadership including recognition of her role in infrastructure planning and in developing a small business incubator and commercial kitchen.

Library of Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia, April 24th 2018 at 5pm

Library of Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia, Tuesday, April 24th 2018 at 5pm, lecture in Slovenian, free of charge

With the new legislation adopted last year, a new spatial act was introduced in the spatial planning process: the Decree on the regulation of the appearance of settlements and landscapes. This legal act states that the municipality regulates the urban and other spatial development in built areas of settlements, including the areas of protected cultural heritage. The emphasis is on the appearance as well as on harmonized and mutually complementary use of public and private surfaces. The decree regulates and protects the appearance of settlements and landscapes by listing specific conditions, including the conditions for the implementation of non-structural interventions in the area. The topics of the lecture will include: the definition of significance in the context of spatial planning of open space and the appearance of settlements, types of significance, the reasons for its evaluation and what exactly we are evaluating. Specific examples in several different locations will be presented. Valuation of different types of significance is one of the tools that will ensure successful implementation of the new spatial act.


The lecture is organized within the events of the Month of Landscape Architecture.

Darja Marinček Prosenc received her PhD at the Faculty of Architecture, she is a master of landscape architecture and a conservator in the field of preservation and protection of cultural heritage sites. She has worked in spatial planning since 1983. Since 1991 she has been managing projects in spatial planning and landscape architecture at POPULUS Prostorski inženiring Ltd.

'Doma Kultury'

Regeneration of Soviet socio-cultural centres into new urban nodes

Library of Urban Planning Institute of Republic of Slovenia,
Tuesday November 28th 2017 at 5PM, lecture in English and free of charge

Irina Irbitskaya, Center of Urban Competence, Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Admin.

The transformation of the socio-cultural infrastructure erected in the state-socialist period of the Soviet Union into local activity centers corresponding to the needs of contemporary society is one of the pertinent topics of the current urban planning in Russia. It includes various activities such as turning the excluded territories of schools and kindergartens into neighborhood centers; resetting the entire district life by transformation of the ‘doma kultury’; improving the diversity and the quality of social services and the quality of the urban environment while reducing the load on the municipal budget by attracting quality investment into the districts. The lecture will present a method of evolutionary transformation of the urban environment through the social and spatial transformation of a ‘dom kultury’ which initially was the cultural and educational centre provided by the Soviet state to a settlement or a city. The main goal of the proposed approach is to preserve the traditions kept in the territory of ‘dom kultury’ while giving it a new identity and bringing in an innovation. Irbitskaya will explain how to make an inventory of the traditions around the existing object by describing the way it functions, its relationship with the surrounding space, its attitude to the past and the future. Re-programming of the object will be discussed, as well as the tools to expand it spatially. Financial and management models will be proposed for all phases of the project metabolism (launch, implementation, use and adaptation), explaining how the emphases shift depending on the growth or decline of the economy.


Irina Irbitskaya is an architect and urban planner. She is a director of Center of Urban Competence at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) with the expertise in housing projects and urban development and planning advancement. She is a co-funder and a principal architect of Platforma, a strategic consulting and conceptual spatial and architectural design office.
