Hi Lars,

Gordon Stephenson's work on Joondalup (and the following planning by
Landcorp and Joondalup  Development Corporation) may be of interest. 
Google "Gordon Stephenson Joondalup"

Best wishes,
Terry

Dear Lars

I would look into the use of protocols. It has worked to reduce complexity
while maintaining outcomes in a number of areas from government to business.

looking for examples of such. We are aware of a number of "master plans",
for instances from New Urbanist projects, but these often presents the
results and shows designs of acceptable buildings. We are looking for
examples that present more a process, to ensure architectural freedom,
creativity and variation. We are also familiar with the works of Christopher
Alexander.

and not be stuck in any single "contemporary period".
