Abstract: This paper puts forward a ‘curatorial approach’ to systems transitions, which is a novel, practicaland transparent way to deal with participation in complex and conflictual contexts. We arguethat the complexity of transitions cannot be adequately addressed through traditional analyticaltools. Alternatively, we propose an approach that can engage with multiple ways of knowing andexpression, sustaining and developing a sense of ‘meaning’ in the planning process. We situatethis within a systems perspective that combines individual and structural actions for visioncreation. This is explored in the case study of a large peri-urban asset in Rome.
