The objective of this project is to explore the challenges regarding the planning of the renovation process of Bellahøjhusene and surrounding areas, an architectural icon and landmark in the city of Copenhagen. The Danish Ministry of Culture has declared Bellahøjhusene as worthy of preservation, which entails certain restrictions that must be taken into account when planning the renovation. This renovation process is examined with an attempt on mapping the field through a field analysis, comprising the different actors sorts of capital and habitus, along with a historical view on Bellahøjhusenes relation to the field of power. Furthermore, theories concerning network management and the different roles in planning, as well as empowerment, are applied to gain a profound understanding of the dominating and dominated actors of the field, and the raison d’être of this distribution of roles. Afterwards the concept of the right to the city is included to analyse and discuss the powerlessness of the inhabitants of Bellahøjhusene. In the end it is concluded that the planning process is divided into a hierarchy, which favours the actors with most economic- and cultural capital. The system nevertheless contains an opportunity for the residents to battle the feeling of powerlessness, an opportunity however, which in the end may be dispelled by the dominating actors, through a Call-in, which in effect will revoke the resident’s vote.
