Abstract: This report looks into the relation between city planning and city life, in the Copenhagen neighborhood of Ørestad City. We look at the limitations and possibilities created by the city planning in Ørestad City. Since the physical layout of the city spaces, is a direct consequence of the planning process, the report will look at what type of city life, is created on the basis of physical layout of the public space, in Ørestad City. Next it is investigated, which consequences the existing city life, has for the citizens. We conclude that the way Ørestad City was planned has meant a number of things for the city life in Ørestad City. First of all, the focus throughout the planning process, was elsewhere than at the people who were going to live in the town. This lack of focus means that the city has been planned for the collective, instead of being planned for individuality and diversity. By planning this way, Ørestad city has become a town divided into different functions. This way of dividing the town, means that city life in Ørestad city will struggle to reach diversity. If a city life lacks diversity, the repercussions for the citizens within, could be a lack of ability to be tolerant and understanding members of society.
