What is a 'Charrette'?
A Charrette is a participatory design process that assimilates many ideas in a dynamic, collaborative and cost-effective process. With the team working alongside the community and other key stakeholders in a continuous meeting, the Charrette enables a thorough examination of multiple scenarios, maintaining momentum to quickly develop ideas and plans.
