ABSTRACT : In its contemporary configuration, empowerment—when applied to city production— insists on the exigence of an argued debate between citizens eased by the public force. Even though this rarely reach consensus, new processes—more pragmatic—are shaping a “new hope”. How does this renewal work? Two distinct professional movements—French and American—built up by architects and urbanists are suggesting a reinvention of city making through a pioneering approach connecting a strong architectural posture with renewed inclusive participatory modes. Each professional action, with its methods, takes on a mediation style that plays a key role between citizens and public power, facilitating the discussion which aims to build the city on the city.
