The focal point of this study is to explore the potential of approaching urban regeneration from a bottom-up perspective, making public involvement an essential and contributing part of the planning process. As part of an impending area renewal in the neighbourhood of Fuglekvarteret in Copenhagen, the schoolyard at Grøndalsvængets Skole is to be partly opened up with the intention of creating a local gathering point. Our study seeks to identify how the pupils in third form relate to the schoolyard, as we regard them as representative primary users. Inspired by participatory action research, we have facilitated an idea-workshop examining the ideas and wishes of the pupils, hereby empowering them as participants in the planning process. Based on an analysis of our empiric data material, using the theories of John Friedmann and Jürgen Habermas as our structural framework of interpretation and understanding, we argue that the perspectives of the pupils can benefit as well as challenge the area renewal plan, expanding both the spacial on social aspects.
