    A portrait of postmodern planning: Anti-hero and/or passionate pilgrim?
    (Canadian Institute of Planners, 1999) Sandercock, Leonie
    Many commentators have argued that the modernist planning project has failed. This paper proposes a way forward for the profession, offering a portrait of the postmodern planner as a passionate pilgrim, a tireless seeker after social, environmental and cultural justice in the planning of human settlements. I outline five critical elements of the shift from a modernist to a postmodern paradigm; I ask what, or whom, might inspire our vision of planning for the twenty-first century; and I sketch some of the qualities, or literacies (technical, multicultural, ecological, and design-based), that the passionate pilgrim will need for the journey into the next century.
