Michael Kwartler counters the rigid determinism of urban planning policy with a just-in-time approach. He describes a new planing, design and regulatory model that harnesses information technologies and emerging planning and design decision support (PDDS), which 'learn' from experience and provide the means to be self-organising and adjusting, responding rather than anticipating or even trying to direct change.
