Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


ABSTRACT Ørestad is a newer district still undergoing development. The district is highly discussed in the media and both architects and town planners have criticized the idea about Ørestad, partly because of the late public participation and the district’s lack of public-oriented activities. This project seeks to comply with this criticism, by examining how the temporary use of urban space can be used as a strategic tool in the development and planning context. The project further focuses on the citizens' demands and needs, which we seek comply with. We are working with different theories about ‘the good urban space’ by Jan Gehl and ‘temporary urban spaces’ by Florian Haydn and Robert Temel. Additionally, the project is based on empirical data from observations in Ørestad and expert interviews with interested parties in the area. The purpose is to show what temporary spaces can contribute with in terms of venues, family activities, culture, art, creativity, etc., which assist in influencing and reinforcing a district’s identity and potentially result in an increase in value. Temporary spaces can create a natural attraction, which increase the opportunities to form new relationships and build networks. Finally, we conclude that temporary use of urban spaces with advantage can be used as a downright strategic tool that can comply with our problem.
