Since the rise of the car, cities have been planned to serve automobility. Today the car has become an ingrained part of our everyday lives and understanding of physical urban environments. As a response to the consequences of heavy air and noise pollution and the growing threat of global warming, the city of Copenhagen has initiated ambitions to limit the urban car-use. With little progress in the municipal top-down planning, an environmentally conscious architect has set out to rethink the way in which to plan for a green mobility transition though a bottom-up approach. In collaboration with the architect, the urban residential street, Badensgade, has embarked in a process to transform their presently car-centric road into a green and social common space. This research paper embarks on its exploration with the theoretical backbone of the works of Patsy Healey, and questions this place specific - and co-created planning initiative may challenge the local inhabitant’s current autologic and mobility patterns. Through a 2,5 months-long intensive qualitative action research study, including 68 mini interviews and a focus group, the research project critically assesses the current planning process and suggests though an original analytical framework the importance of a holistic processual understanding of the complexity of a green mobility transition.
