The Becoming of Urban Space: From design object to design process

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

Abstract

The theoretical background in this chapter is process aesthetics, inspired by Deleuze’s philosophy of becoming, expressed, for example, in recent theories in landscape urbanism and emergent urbanism.
The concept of design is defined as a process of becoming negotiated between
different social and material agents.
The illustrative case study discussed an attempt to replace traditional master
planning with ‘potentiality planning’ in the parallel commissioning process for
Varvsstaden, Malmö, Sweden.
The contribution to a general core of design research is an understanding of urban
design practices as cross-disciplinary, processual and situated practices of developing urban potential.
