Chapter Four places the Take Part Process in the context of other participatory planning methods, both government-sanctioned and grassroots. In addition, it situates the workshop process in the trajectory of Halprin’s work by examining those fundamental projects that led to the ultimate formulation of Taking Part. These include the collaborative workshops Larry and Anna called “Experiments in Environment” (1966 and 1968), as well as the firm’s 1968 report titled New York, New York: A Study of the Quality, Character, and Meaning of Open Space in Urban Design, which stresses citizen participation and begins to develop a methodology.
