Unless someone is designing for themselves - that is, a hermit building a house for himself/herself - design is always a collarborative adventure. That means if a building (or a neighborhood, or a waterfront etc.) is being designed - the design process must involve the people that will use the building etc. ( not the person/institution paying for the design and or the building). Only an arrogant fool would try to design something that will be used by others - only by himself/herself.
One of the greatest architetcs in the world right now, is the Danish architect Jan Gehl. He led the redesign of Copenhagen's downtown into one of the best people places in the world. He is now redoing London, England as well as working in several other countries. Notice I said led. A great designer has to be a great facilitator - not a dictator - not a fascist.
